CLASSNK GRANTS FIRST REMOTE SURVEY (RMSV) NOTATION

CLASSNK GRANTS FIRST REMOTE SURVEY (RMSV) NOTATION

Thursday, February 25, 2021 

ClassNK has granted its Remote Survey (RMSV) notation for ‘Orca Ace’, a car carrier ship operated by Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) and managed by MOL Ship Management.

This is the first vessel on ClassNK’s registry to be marked with RMSV notation. To provide a proper guidance for remote surveys using ICT, ClassNK published its Guidelines for Remote Surveys (Ver2) in January 2021 by incorporating outcomes of investigation and examination for presenting a transparent standards for remote survey application and ensuring reliability equivalent to conventional witness surveys. In Ver 2.0, ClassNK made a revision to include class notation requirements for ships with advance preparation for remote surveys such as procedures for crew members.

ClassNK has carried out the verification of the vessel in line with the guidelines. Upon satisfactory completion of its document/plan examination and on-site survey, ClassNK added its first RMSV notation to Orca Ace.
