Furukawa Batteries Now Certified for Sea Eco Marine Power (EMP) has for- mally certified The Furukawa Bat- tery Co. Ltd. of Japan as a supplier of batteries for use on ship and marine structures. The certification covers a range of battery technologies, in- cluding the hybrid valve-regulated lead-acid (VRLA) UltraBattery. The certification process in- cluded obtaining approval from ClassNK for each battery type, an inspection of the Furukawa Battery production center at Imaichi Plant at Nikko, Japan, and a review of the relevant quality standards and cer- tifications, including ISO 9001 and ISO 14001. EMP also assessed how Furukawa Battery recycles returned batteries as part of a sustainability review. The batteries covered by the EMP certification are the: FC-38-12, UB-50-12, FCP-500 and FCP-1000. International Distribution For ROV3D Recon DVR Seatronics, an Acteon compa- ny, and Whitecap Scientific, devel- opers of the ROV3D Recon DVR, announced a global distribution agreement that will see Seatron- ics invest in ROV3D Recon DVR rental units for its Aberdeen (U.K.), Houston (U.S.), Singapore and Abu Dhabi (U.A.E.) offices. The ROV3D Recon DVR allows any ROV with two cameras to generate measur- able 3D point clouds of subsea structures and assets during routine operations. Electronic Certificates Grow in Popularity With the introduction of IMO-compliant electronic class and statutory certificates, DNV GL took classification into new territory. Just four months after the launch of this new service, more than 50,000 cer- tificates have been issued. Many owners have opted not to wait for their first scheduled survey to shift vessels to the new certificates and have asked to move their whole fleet onto the new system. Digitally signed electronic certificates now represent nearly 80 percent of all certificates issued by DNV GL. Cer- tificates are published on DNV GL's customer portal immediately after an onboard survey is completed. All relevant parties can access the latest certificates anywhere in the world. Customers can share access to their certificates with stakeholders (char- terers, ports, flag administrations, insurers) by using temporary access codes, reducing the administrative burden on the shipowner.
