Cost Savings by Using DNV Class


The Royal Danish Navy and Det Norske Veritas (DNV) have recently signed a pioneering contract on classification of the entire Danish naval fleet of surface vessels. DNV will assist in quality control of existing surface ships and its newbuilding programme. The DNV class concept will be used as a cost-effective tool to improve the efficiency of quality control and safety systematics of the Royal Danish Navy. The contract covers 35 surface ships in operation, and 25 surface ships that are to be build according to DNV class rules.

With the latest Defence Agreement it has been decided to modify the logistic structure of the Royal Danish Navy. The use of civilian rules, standards and quality assurance measures will be one of the means to improve efficiency. The supervisory activities adopted from civilian shipping encompass:
  • Independent third party verification of the ships' technical condition, separated from the Navy’s maintenance organisation, to meet safety objectives and technical demands.
  • Making use of modern technical developments in civilian fast craft and seismological ships to enhance the capabilities of naval ships.

It is further agreed between the parties that DNV shall train Navy technical inspectors to full qualification level as general ship surveyors for ships in operation, in accor-dance with DNV’s qualification system for classification.
