Lloyd's Register Expands Naval Business


Lloyd's Register Expands Naval Business

Lloyd's Register (LR) continues to develop its naval business on a global scale. The most recent version of the Rules and Regulations for the Classification of Naval Ships (Rules) was published in January 2001, and, in addition to the hull aspects, includes requirements for machinery and electrical systems. The other publication from LR is Naval Survey Guidance for Steel Ships, which sets out naval ship survey requirements and will be of practical use to navy representatives, surveyors, shipbuilders, and shiprepairers.

Other recent LR-initiatives include the following:
  • the expansion of the Lloyd's Register naval ship technical committee to include representation from all regions
  • the completion and imminent verification of phase I software to complement the Rules. This is the first naval ship specific classification society software available anywhere
  • the development of a naval ship specific training course aimed at naval staff, ship designers, constructors, repairers, and surveyors
  • the appointment, in all regions, of local naval account managers to address the needs of navies
  • the completion of web-based information specific to naval ships, which can be found on the Lloyd's Register Web site www.lr.org - under 'services'.

Lloyd's Register continues to be involved in extensive naval ship activities for the UK Royal Navy including classification of the Type 45 anti air warfare destroyer, other existing RN ships (e.g. Type 23 frigates and aircraft carrier Ark Royal), and all recent new buildings of auxiliary ships. LR's growing global naval business currently includes activities with navies of Australia, New Zealand, Sri Lanka, The Netherlands/Saudi Arabia and Canada.
