ABS has announced that it has launched its new guide to assist shipyards and barge operators: ‘The Guide for Building and Classing Liquefied Gas Tank Barges with Remote Control and Monitoring of Essential Systems’.

According to the statement, the guide provides requirements for the design and construction of barges equipped with various degrees of automation, remote control and monitoring of essential systems supporting cargo management. The barges may be unattended and controlled mostly from the towing vessel’s navigation bridge.

Patrick Janssens, Vice President, ABS Global Gas Solutions, said: “We are focused on developing practical guidance and solutions that respond to the challenges faced by owners and operators while ushering in new concepts and advancing the latest technologies.”

According to the statement, the guide is intended to be used alongside ABS’ ‘Rules for Building and Classing Steel Barges’, ‘Rules for Building and Classing Marine Vessels’ and the ‘Rules for Building and Classing Steel Vessels for Service on Rivers and Intracoastal Waterways’.
