Hyundai Heavy’s digital tank system gets LR approval

South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries has received approval in principle by Lloyd’s Register for its digital health management system for a type B gas containment tank.

LR has awarded AiP following a joint development project between the duo launched in November 2019.

The approval of the system named Hyundai Prismatic Independent IMO Type B Tank eXcellence (HiPIX) sets Hyundai Heavy on the path to become a DHM provider to the maritime industry.

This includes offering customers the possibility to operate and maintain their ships’ type B gas containment tanks in an “optimal cost-effective” way while complying with classification and statutory requirements.

Hyundai Heavy aims to develop a complete structural DHM system for its LNG fuel type B tank fitted onboard the dual-fueled ultra-large container ships that are currently under construction at Hyundai Samho.

This will assure structural integrity in operation and safety and enhance the ship’s operational and compliance performance, Hyundai Heavy said.
