RINA BIOSAFE NOTATION FOR CMHI CRUISE NEWBUILD

RINA BIOSAFE NOTATION FOR CMHI CRUISE NEWBUILD

Monday, June 7, 2021 

Italian classification society RINA has successfully completed the evaluation procedure for the Biosafe Ship notation for a newbuilding expedition cruise ship, currently known as Hull No CMHI196-4, currently under construction at the China Merchants Heavy Industry (CMHI) shipyard in Jiangsu.

The decision of CMHI to comply with Biosafe Ship guidelines is an important milestone for the Chinese cruise shipbuilding industry. This reflects the strong commitment of the entire sector to control biosafety risks and minimise the threat of infection to passengers, crew and workers.

Biosafe Ship is a goal-based and voluntary notation taking into account different systems, components and operative procedures to mitigate risks of infectious diseases on board ships, developed by RINA last year in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
