Shipbuilding group CSSC has entered into a new strategic partnership with DNV GL. The strategic partnership will focus on developing future-proof solutions and competencies for shipping in a variety of fields including alternative fuels and environmentally friendly technologies, new vessel designs to meet the IMO greenhouse gas targets, digitalization and cyber security. Other areas of research and exchange are the design and building of large offshore floating structures, deep sea mining and agriculture, and ocean research activities. Under the agreement, DNV GL will support CSSC in their project engineering, construction and installation process by offering classification, certification, verification, consultancy, software and joint development services to the shipbuilding group.

DNV GL and CSSC group shipyards had already announced several joint projects, including an Approval in Principal to Hudong-Zhonghua shipyard for the design of a gas-fuelled 25,000 TEU container vessel, which would be the largest ship of its type to date, and a JDP with Huangpu-Wenchong Shipbuilding Company for a new energy-efficient 5,000 TEU Panamax container ship for the fast-growing intra-Asia trades. AIPs were also presented to CSSC’s ship design consultancy SDARI for the design of a 93,000/135,000 cbm very large ethane carrier, as well as to Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Co for a concept design of a box-type self-elevating offshore fish farming unit.

In addition, DNV GL’s artificial intelligence research center signed a joint development project with Guangzhou Shipyard International Company Limited. The project looks to improve welding non-destructive testing efficiency through the use of AI technology for the automatic detection and assessment of radiography testing digital images.
