Spurred by the IMO strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Oshima Shipbuilding and classification society DNV GL have signed a long-term strategic cooperation to conduct research and development together on new bulk carrier designs. The first design to result from the cooperation, the “Oshima Ultramax 2030” leading to a 50% reduction in EEDI, was launched at the Nor-Shipping trade fair in Oslo. The partners aim to continue the strategic cooperation through to 2030, developing and updating a road map towards the IMO zero emissions scenario, which will be gradually implemented through annual joint industry projects, where other partners will be invited to join.

Mr Eiichi Hiraga, President of Oshima Shipbuilding, said that “Oshima and DNV GL have already had a close cooperation for many years, resulting in close to 200 ships delivered or on order from Oshima to DNV GL class, and with this strategic agreement we want to extend this cooperation even further. We are delighted to deliver new, innovative designs together in the years to come.”
