ClassNK issues the world’s first onboard CCS installation

Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (ClassNK) has issued the ‘SCCS-Full’ 1 class notation to the Ever Top, a Neopanamax container vessel owned by Evergreen.

The notation indicates that the vessel now has onboard CO2 capture and storage (CCS) equipment, making it the world’s first Neopanamax container vessel converted with such systems.

Shanghai Marine Diesel Engine Research Institute designed and built the CCS systems, which were installed at Huarun Dadong Dockyard Co., Ltd (HRDD).

ClassNK reviewed the system components and the installation plan, aligning with its comprehensive ‘Guidelines for Shipboard CO2 Capture and Storage Systems’.

The risk assessment using Hazard Identification (HAZID) and the onsite installation method were also investigated. Following confirmation of conformity with the applicable criteria, the ‘SCCS-Full’ designation was properly applied to the vessel.

“It is our great honor to be a part of this outstanding collaboration, and we are committed to supporting proactive initiatives toward decarbonisation by providing appropriate standards, surveys, and certifications.”

Just recently, ClassNK gave its Innovation Endorsement for Products and Solutions to Deep Sea Technologies SMPC’s ‘Cassandra’ vessel and voyage performance monitoring technology.
