Lloyd's Register EMEA (LR) is part of the Lloyd’s Register Group, a global independent risk management and safety assurance organisation that works to enhance safety and to approve assets and systems at sea, on land and in the air. As a class society, the main work of Lloyd’s Register Marine and Offshore is on classification (based on its own rules) and statutory (as a recognized organization) during the design, construction and operation of ships and marine assets. LR works closely with other regulatory bodies, both international (e.g. IMO, ISO, IACS), transnational (e.g. EU) and national levels (member states) and also acts as a 'notified body' for many European Community directives, helping ensure essential product safety rules work properly. To support these functions, LR maintains a marine and offshore related strategic research activity, carries out extensive research and development activities and initiates new standards for quality and safety as the boundaries of knowledge expand.
Ishy project activities
Lloyds Register is involved in the project by undertaking risk assessment of proposed low carbon technologies covering the different developed and tested engines in the different vessels which involve the bunkering, storage and use of Hydrogen. LR will deliver a guidance document relating to the safe use of gaseous and/or liquefied hydrogen to mitigate the identified hazards, covering the technologies developed during this project, based on the results of the HAZID and HAZOP risk studies. This guidance note will focus on how hydrogen can be bunkered, stored and used within the different propulsion systems, minimising the risks to persons and assets.
