Demand for ICOMIA's KEEL-CHECKER

The ICOMIA (International Council of Marine Industry Associations) Secretariat is pleased to report a significant industry interest in the recently-launched KEEL-CHECKER. So far, the Secretariat has received over 130 enquiries regarding the online software. KEEL-CHECKER was launched in March of this year.

Although the new standard has still a few months to go until publication, many organizations already require compliant keel designs.
