KR opens green certification centre

The Korean Register (KR) has opened what it claims to be the world’s first green-ship equipment test certification centre in Gunsan, Jeonbuk, Korea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}KR says the facility will be used to carry out testing and evaluation beyond its routine R&D work and establishes a base from which to lead the international standardisation of eco-friendly vessels. Testing and evaluation will be carried out on diesel engines, fuel usage, hybrid power systems, combustion and emissions, material corrosion and a number of other areas.

The classification society also expects the centre to operate as an international green-ship hub by introducing a certification system for green technologies.

“This centre was created to provide our clients with holistic services covering technical consulting, engineering and certification,” said Dr. B. S. Park, chairman and CEO of KR.

“We are delighted to be the world’s first centre to offer a one-stop service for testing and certifying green-ship components and machinery in a single location. Our centre is equipped with the required high-quality facilities and technology for test, evaluation and certification.”

“This is a further example of KR operating beyond compliance and I am confident that this new facility will help our clients enhance their technical quality which will, in turn, have a positive effect on the shipping industry as a whole.”{/mprestriction}
