Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) have been granted Approval in Principle (AiP) for a cyber preparedness notation from Bureau Veritas (BV) for their latest vessel design.
“Cyber security is one of the most important technologies in the process of moving beyond smart ships to autonomous ships,” said Won Ho Joo, Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Technical Officer at HHI.
“It is very meaningful that the cyber safety of our ships, which has been built through continuous development, has been verified once again in this collaboration with BV. We look forward to continuing our collaborative research with BV, so we can create more safe ships.”
BV’s ‘Cyber Managed Prepared’ notation aims to support ship designers and builders in meeting cyber security requirements and ensuring compliance with guidelines for newbuilding vessels, including IACS Recommendation 166 on Cyber Resilience.
Christophe Capitant, Country Chief Executive of Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore Korea, commented: “We are excited to continue the close cooperation between KSOE, HHI and BV related to the development of key technology for smart and autonomous ships as the future framework of shipping.”
