Vessel to profit from improved access to flexible container stowage solutions

Navis, the provider of maritime software solutions for cargo operations and vessel performance, has announced that the ship-specific MACS3 Sealash module on board a 8,000 TEU container vessel has been successfully approved by the classification society DNV GL, the company said.

The vessel owned and managed by Hamburg-based Offen group, is now able to apply the latest update of Route Specific Container Stowage (RSCS+) lashing regulations from DNV GL, July 2018 edition. The update allows the maximum theoretical capacity for this vessel to increase by approximately five percent.

Based on the updated cargo securing manual (CSM), Navis naval architects implemented the RSCS+ model in the MACS3 Sealash software to be approved by DNV GL, which will helps ship owners benefit from route specific container stowage rules.
