This interesting paper, a meticulous organised slides presentation by Dr. Abdul Rahim*, the Managing Director for Europe and Africa of ClassNK, took place earlier this evening at the IMarEST’s head quarters’ boardroom at Birdcage Walk at Westminster in London.

It was an excellent presented preview of the practical R&D initiative of ClassNK with respect to the development of energy efficient technologies.  The speaker stressed that the R&D initiative is twofold: to support new regulations and to develop next generation technologies including fuel saving technologies.

As for new regulations, some of the NOx reduction technologies including SCR and EGR were briefed.

Some of the next generation technology development projects detailed include the hybrid tug boat, use of lithium batteries on board, fuel emulsion in reducing NOx emission, CFRP propeller, liquid hydrogen transportation, and maritime big data centre.

Over ten questions were asked and interesting replies were appropriately given. We hope to be able soon to insert the respective slides when same are received.
