LR and Triumph Energy Roll Out Development Project for Sustainable Vessels
Lloyd's Register, based in the UK, has partnered with marine technology firm Triumph Energy to establish a new joint development project (JDP) to ensure vessels are built and operated sustainably.
The collaboration will focus on the development of a new ShipRight procedure for vessels operating in the offshore energy, decommissioning, and renewable energy sectors.
The new procedure will guarantee that vessels constructed with sustainable materials meet relevant sustainability and ECO requirements.
It will also assist in ensuring that ships are built and operated under the existing International Maritime Organisation (IMO) 2030 and 2050 regulations.
The JDP will focus on combining modern remote facilities and artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce the crewing levels required for offshore and back deck operations.
This change not only reduces people's exposure to hazardous offshore areas but also cuts down the carbon footprint of mobilising and demobilising personnel in offshore-based operations.
Under the JDP, Triumph has created designs integrating technology that shows minimised greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, advanced energy recovery systems, and the use of certified sustainable materials, stated LR.
LR senior business development manager Graeme Hyde said:
“Under this joint development partnership with Triumph, the development of the ShipRight Procedure will build on Lloyd’s Register’s existing ECO notations. LR will support the creation of a landmark 100% sustainability notation that will provide evidence whether a vessel is certified as Carbon Positive and is compliant with all green financing.
“This will enable our clients to build and operate IMO 2030 and 2050 compliant vessels today.”
