The Korean Register has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the National Technical University of Athens, agreeing to share specialist technology and software with the students of the School Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering.

The agreement was coordinated with the assistance of Ambassador Soo-suk Lim, Embassy of the Republic of Korea to the Hellenic Republic and is part of wider ongoing cooperation and exchange of maritime technology between Greece and South Korea.

Under the agreement, KR will supply NTUA students with its award-winning software free of charge, including SeaTrust-HullScan which follows KR’s high standards and is designed to analyse the structural strength of a ship in line with KR’s Rules and the harmonized CSR. KR is also sharing KR-CON, a bespoke software database of all the International Maritime Organization convention documents, together with full training on both software packages.
