HULL RENOVATION PLANS MAY EXTEND SHIP LIFE

The high cost of newbuildings has led owners to consider extending the life of existing tonnage. The proposals outlined by Lloyd's Register for achieving this ship life extension are discussed. The basic concept of the hull renovation scheme is that a ship will be restored to a state equivalent to that of a comparatively new ship. LR intends to provide standards for two levels of renovation that are equivalent, respectively, to the condition of a five-year-old hull and a ten-year-old hull.
