INDIAN Register of Shipping (IRClass) recently ran a technical seminar in Mumbai.

The seminar covered several topics including Cyber Risk Management with respect to ISM code, IMO DCS and new services of IRClass like Vessel Performance Monitoring System (VPMS).

VPMS is aimed at helping owners and managers in assessing the health of critical machinery and systems, diagnostic and preventive maintenance.

The seminar included a presentation on approval, installation, testing and commissioning of ballast water treatment (BWT) units and scrubbers.



This was discussed by IRClass and a guest speaker from Aries Marine, Dubai, who shared their experience and learning based on installation of more than 300 Ballast Water Treatment Systems and more than 100 Scrubber installations.

The event was said to have seen an engaging and interactive Q&A session following each presentation.

IRClass head operations K Bhardwaj said it was important to share knowledge.

“IRClass as a knowledge-based organisation is happy to share its perspectives and solutions to help the maritime industry to comply with the latest regulations,” he said.

“We intend to conduct more such events in India and rest of the world throughout 2019.”
