VeriSTAR Lashing 3.0

Bureau Veritas has launched a new, re-engineered version of its VeriSTAR Lashing software to meet the requirements of its revised Rules for Container Ships (NR 625).
A key focus of the software development was on creating a fast and user-friendly process that enables easy assessment of container securing and locking devices against BV Rules.

With VeriSTAR Lashing 3.0 users can analyze complex lashing configurations (external, internal or mixed lashing systems). This analysis takes into account acceleration values defined in NR 625; the roll reduction factor if the ship is equipped with an anti-roll tank or a stabilization system; and horizontal and vertical twistlock gaps. It also checks strength criteria including stack reactions, loads in container fittings and lashing rod effort versus safe working load.
