ClassNK launches mobile app for NK-SHIPS

ClassNK has launched its NK-SHIPS app, a mobile version of the classification society’s free, web-based information service for owners, operators, and managers of NK-classed vessels or vessels whose ISM/ISPS/MLC are registered with the Japanese organisation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Clients can now access information to manage their fleet using the app via their smartphone or tablet.

Users can browse and manage ship particulars within the application, and monitor the status of surveys/audits, due dates, and expiry dates of certificates for ships in their fleet.

The NK-SHIPS app is available to both iOS and Android users and can be downloaded for free from the App Store and from Google Play.{/mprestriction}

  • ClassNK, JMU, NAPA complete feasibility study on 3D models for shipbuilding

    ClassNK, Japan Marine United (JMU), and NAPA have completed a joint feasibility study on 3D model-based plan approval using 3D CAD models as part of their technical investigation project.

    Shipbuilding designs are gradually transitioning from 2D drawings to those designed with 3D CAD software. Classification societies, whose plan approvals are currently based mostly on 2D drawings, are also required to develop a scheme for 3D CAD models from their submission to their examination completion.

    This project was conducted to examine the technical development required in each process of plan approval by JMU, NAPA, and ClassNK to realise 3D model-based plan approval. In the feasibility study, ClassNK conducted a trial evaluation for hull structural design on a 3D CAD model of 300,000DWT ore carrier designed and created by JMU, using NAPA Designer, a 3D CAD software application for ship design developed by NAPA, as a 3D model viewer. Plan submission, storage, and notification of examination results were made using the Society's electronic plan examination system NK-PASS.

    The investigation concluded that information required for class approval can be confirmed through a 3D CAD model, and that "NK-PASS" is also compatible with 3D CAD models. The results of this survey will serve as a basis for future technical studies, and the Society will continue to work with the industry to realise 3D model-based plan approval.

    Mr. Hayato Suga, corporate officer and director of plan approval and technical solution division said “This study has proven the future potential of 3D model-based approvals. 3D based design can be the key to improving digital solutions in the ship industry, including the ship design process, approval process and later fleet maintenance. I hope that the entire industry will also quickly realise the many opportunities and increased efficiency that can be achieved as a result of this initiative. The vessels of the future will be able to accommodate much better and safer designs in shorter amounts of time.”
