Korean Register, ROK Navy’s NALCOM team up on naval inspection technologies
The Korean Register (KR) has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Naval Logistics Command (NALCOM) of the Korean Navy to exchange inspection technology at the headquarters of the Korean Register located in Gangseo-gu, Busan.
Under the agreement, the two organizations will cooperate for developing and exchanging inspection technologies including big data, blockchain, etc. KR will also provide technical advice on quality inspection of naval vessels and their equipment.
Furthermore, KR and NALCOM discussed the quality inspection system for military supplies in detail and a cooperation plan to enhance the advanced inspection technologies for naval ship equipment. The Naval Logistics Command of the ROK Navy is the Republic of Korea Navy’s supply command, providing the Republic of Korea Navy with supplies, services, and quality-of-life support.
On the other hand, KR provides trusted technical advisory services for government vessels and delivers expertise accumulated in work with the Republic of Korea Navy, Korea Coast Guard, and other government ship owners.
“We hope this agreement will serve as an opportunity to enhance mutual understanding of the Navy’s quality inspection and applied regulations. KR will spare no effort to support technical cooperation and the exchange of human resources to ensure the safety of naval vessels,” Yong-sok Lee, Executive Vice President of KR Business Division, said.
Recently, KR and the South Korea Coast Guard (KCG) inked a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to exchange the expertise in technologies of naval vessels. Under this agreement, KR and KCG will cooperate to exchange important analysis, advice, and guidance to ensure the security and enhancement of naval vessels.
