NEW PROCEDURE ALIGNED WITH NR 614

sub sear

After a series of exchanges with stakeholders on the subject of NR 614, Bureau Veritas has defined a new underwater noise measurements procedure that is in line with ship in-service constraints. Bureau Veritas’ specialists worked with key partners to create the new procedure, a cost-efficient solution that maintains a high level of accuracy. Typically, for a 20-knot sailing container vessel, ship immobilization time is divided by three with one passage instead of two, plus two U-turns and realignments.
