Classification society DNV GL has awarded approval in principle (AIP) to Hyundai Heavy Industries for the design of a jetty-moored near shore FLNG barge.

DNV GL reviewed the design based on the feasibility of constructing the FLNG barge using standard shipbuilding rules and techniques.

The AIP certificate confirms that DNV GL has found no significant obstacles to prevent the concept from being realized by applying the DNV GL rules for classification of ships and offshore standards, the classification society said in a statement.

“The FLNG market is beginning to emerge, and nearshore projects are expected to be at the forefront of these developments,” said Simon Lee, general manager of Hyundai Heavy Industries.

He added that HHI’s design offers lower production costs, reduced time to production, and improved environmental performance.
