ABS agrees co-op deal with MARIC of China

ABS reports that it has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Marine Design & Research Institute of China (MARIC) to expand their collaboration in ship design, focusing on operational efficiency and environmental performance.

{/mprestriction}ABS senior vice president and chief technology officer Howard Fireman and MARIC President Wenhua Xing signed the agreement at the MARIC premises in Shanghai, China.

“This agreement aligns the core competencies of ABS and MARIC and allows us to work together on designs that meet environmental regulations and technology trends,” said Mr Fireman.

“Leveraging technologies such as CFD, techno economic evaluation, and performance data analysis, we will be able to help industry effect improvements in energy efficiency and environmental compliance.”

Through this agreement, ABS and MARIC will collaborate on technical support, classification, certification, training and statutory guidance for merchant vessels and offshore units. ABS also will assess compliance with ABS Rules, Guides and statutory regulations.

The two organisations will also look to form joint development projects in areas such as energy efficiency, environmental performance, techno economic evaluation, design considerations for harsh environment operations, novel design concepts and technology performance assessment.

“For the past 65 years, MARIC has been a technology pioneer in design development of merchant vessels and offshore units in China. We value this cooperation agreement with ABS as a great opportunity to pursue state-of-the-art, energy-efficient, environmentally friendly and intellectual technologies together to our mutual benefit,” said Mr Xing.{/mprestriction}
