May 7 – ONEX Peace

Chamber of Shipping > Blog > Ship of the Week > May 7 – ONEX Peace

ONEX Peace, an Aframax tanker built by Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HHI) is the world’s first merchant ship to receive DNV’s SILENT-E notation. The SILENT-E notation ensures ships do not exceed average-to-moderate Underwater Radiation Noise (URN) levels. Vessels with this notation can minimize their impact on marine life and document noise performance for authorities, or those requiring proof of noise emissions for transit through vulnerable areas.

DNV, HHI and the Korea Research Institute of Ships & Ocean Engineering are conducting a joint research project on measuring and evaluating underwater radiation noise. As part of the study, the parties carried out the underwater noise measurement and analysis of the ONEX Peace. Following verification of his ability to meet the requirement DNV granted the SILENT-E notation.
