Silverstream Gains AIP from CCS

Maritime clean technology company Silverstream Technologies announced it has signed an agreement in principle (AIP) with China Classification Society (CCS), the primary class society in China that serves the shipping, offshore and related industrial industries.

This is Silverstream’s first agreement of this nature with a classification society. The AIP confirms that CCS has reviewed and verified the Silverstream System’s design drawings and provides an independent class verification of its generic system design. Furthermore, the organizations will collaborate on project-specific engagements and approvals for the integration of the Silverstream System in ships classed by CCS.

Silverstream said the AIP further strengthens its ties to the Chinese shipping market. The company has an office and team in Shanghai, 20 of whom are purely dedicated to on-the-ground support for Asian installations of its technology.

Silverstream recently became one of the founding members of the Global Sustainable Transport Innovation Alliance (GSTIA), an initiative sponsored by the Chinese Ministry of Transport, designed to accelerate green industrial projects within China.

The news of Silverstream’s involvement in the GSTIA follows other recent China-based announcements for the company, with a range of agreements being signed with Chinese shipyards. These include a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with COSCO Shipping Heavy Industry, and 10 new system orders for liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers, many of which will be built at Chinese yards.
