Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) has become the first shipbuilder to receive an Approval in Principle (AiP) under Bureau Veritas’ (BV) Cyber Managed Prepared notation.

SHI’s LNGC design was the recipient of the AiP. It was awarded for its SVESSEL smart ship solution, which focuses on complete digitalisation of the ship and its applications to efficiently and safely assist operations.

BV’s Cyber Managed Prepared notation confirms the design’s compliance with the industry’s best practices and IMO 2021 requirements in terms of cyber security, the class society said.

SHI’s cyber security technology has already been deployed on a number of ships built by the company.

Hyun Joe Kim, SHI Vice President, said, “Strong cyber security is key to enable shipping to move on to the next level of digitalised and connected ships. For years, SHI has been at the forefront of innovative design and equipment, helping our clients address the risk of cyber attacks, while complying with the current rules and regulations.

“All the efforts and good collaboration with BV’s expertise led to the issuance of this Approval in Principle. We look forward to continuing our collaborative research with BV, so we can keep leading the way and support shipping’s evolution towards increased autonomy,” he said.

Laurent Leblanc, BV Marine and Offshore’s Senior Vice President Technical & Operations, added, “Bureau Veritas is proud to see the successful completion of this AiP with Samsung Heavy Industries upon the development of this design of a LNG carrier with BV Cyber Managed Prepared notation.

“This announcement demonstrates it is a viable solution that will support the journey towards smart and autonomous ship technology and cyber security. We are also excited to see this co-operation pave the way for further successes for both SHI and BV in the development of technologies for smart and autonomous shipping and cyber security,” he said.
