Bureau Veritas (BV), a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, has awarded approval in principle for a new vessel concept design by Japanese FPSO specialist Modec.

Modec, the global supplier and operator of offshore floating production platforms, has developed the floating storage, regasification, water-desalination and power-generation (FSRWP) vessel, which could provide clean energy and water faster and cheaper than current solutions.

BV said on Wednesday that the new vessel design could provide clean power and water more efficiently and cost-effectively than conventional solutions.

“As a new concept, the design is not covered by existing classification society rules but, working alongside Bureau Veritas, with its global presence, including a strong network in Africa, a key potential geographical area for FSRWP deployment, the two international businesses worked together to find a solution,” BV said.

The Bureau developed new approaches to classification for this vessel, based on risk mitigation around new technology and requirements. As a result, BV awarded the AiP to the new FSRWP vessel, formally recognized at a ceremony at OTC 2018.

Matthieu de Tugny, COO of Marine and Offshore of Bureau Veritas, said: “We were delighted to be able to support Modec and issue an approval in principle for the new design concept vessel.

“At Bureau Veritas, we welcome innovation, and are proud to support our clients with their new ideas, using the expertise we have acquired over decades of testing, inspection, and certification, to make their ideas reality.”
