Lloyd's Register Helps RAN


Lloyd's Register and the Royal Australian Navy continue to develop their ongoing relationship through the application of LR's naval classification programme and associated service package. The programme benefits the RAN by applying a system based on the well-established approach used for commercial shipping to warships, simplifying procurement and upkeep programmes, and providing independent design, construction and maintenance verification.

Several projects are proceeding successfully, and they demonstrate the benefits available to all navies seeking to reduce costs and improve overall efficiency. Surveys are underway in Cairns on the total fleet of six Landing Craft Heavy vessels in conjunction with a life of type extension project for the platform. The classification activity for these vessels will include hull, machinery, and equipment notations. Working closely with the RAN in the adoption of commercial practices and standards is expected to lead to significant cost savings for the project when compared with the established defence industry practices. Hull structural design review and a gap analysis have been undertaken to determine the level of compliance with International Maritime Organization statutory conventions has also been undertaken on a number of platforms. Currently all mono-hull fleet classification work for the RAN is placed with LR.

LR's Naval Ship Rules are the only 'stand alone' set of classification society rules available in the industry. LR's consolidated naval version allows navies to reflect their specific operating requirements within a classification regime. LR's Naval Ship Rules are applicable to vessels from large capital ships including aircraft carriers down to small patrol vessels, each type of ship being provided with Rules based on the best commercial expertise tailored to the naval environment.

Lloyd’s Register, Daryl Attwood
