Lloyd's Register announces new underwater noise notation

Lloyd's Register has released a new underwater noise notation and ShipRight procedure on underwater radiated noise with the intention of helping shipowners minimise underwater noise emmisions when operating in sensitive environments.  Increased focus is being placed on underwater noise emissions from vessels and this is creating the need fr a means of controlling underwater noise radiation.  New international standards and regulations are anticipated, which will restrict acess to environmentally sensitive areas and limit the types of vessels callign at ports to only those complying with stringent noise level standards.
