ABS and HHI Complete Design Simulation Joint Development Project

ABS and Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) have completed a Joint Development Project (JDP) to build multi-physics simulations capable of analyzing the carbon-footprint of vessels in the design stage.

The simulations allow in-depth evaluation of the impact of a range of energy saving options, offering a detailed preview of a vessel’s performance before key investment decisions are made.

“The modeling and simulation techniques that ABS and HHI are pioneering allow owners, designers and shipyards unprecedented insight into the impact of multiple decarbonization strategies on a vessel’s performance at the earliest possible stage. This approach unlocks benefits in operational efficiency, safety and investment decision making,” said Patrick Ryan, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Engineering and Technology. “This technology also aligns with our industry-leading efforts to introduce a paperless end-to-end class process, demonstrating how we are moving ahead and realizing the benefits of digital class for the industry.”

“This joint project will give us more options to review alternative technologies at early design stage. Our vessels fully comply with IMO’s environmental regulations before 2050, with LNG dual fuel propulsion systems, including various original energy saving devices and continuous developments will keep HHI and ABS front-runners in this fast changing industry,” said Jaeeul Kim, Executive Vice President and CTO of HHI…
