Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering and DNV GL have signed a framework agreement which will see them cooperate on joint development projects for future technologies in the shipbuilding and offshore plant industries. The agreement was signed by DSME President & CEO Sung-Geun Lee and DNV GL Group President & CEO Remi Eriksen at the DNV GL. The agreement confirms the cooperation of DSME and DNV GL through future JDPs to develop advanced technologies to maximize the safety and efficiency of ships and offshore units. Planned joint studies include 3D model hull approval, the estimation of allowable wave heights for a 174K LNG FSRU, and a structural safety assessment for SOLIDUS which is an LNG cargo containment system developed by DSME.

In the context of the enlarged cooperation, DNV GL presented DSME with a general approval for ship application (GASA) for DSME’s SOLIDUS LNG cargo containment system. SOLIDUS is the result of DSME’s extensive experience with LNG carrier newbuildings and uses a high-performance and environmentally friendly insulation material developed with BASF, to lower LNG boil-off rates. In addition, to optimize the safety of the system and prevent LNG leakage, DSME has incorporated two metallic barriers into SOLIDUS.

Founded in 1973 at Okpo bay, South Korea, DSME is one of the world’s top shipbuilding and offshore contractors who is specialized in building various vessels, offshore & onshore plants, drilling rigs, FPSO/FPUs, submarines, and destroyers.
