DNV has become the world’s first classification society to provide a qualified notation with the launch of our new TMON (Oil lubricated, +) notation.
Serving to minimize propulsion safety risk and prevent costly equipment failure, TMON (Oil lubricated, +) is not just another ‘plus’ qualifier, but a monitoring and control dimension on one of the most important components safeguarding the propulsion function.
DNV Maritime senior principal engineer, Arun Sethumadhavan, describes the new notation as “raising the level of monitoring even higher to ensure optimal performance of the stern tube bearing.”
Rajiv Prabhakar, Fleet Director, Eaglestar, said: “Safety, efficiency and reliability are paramount to us at Eaglestar. As the operators of the first set of vessels in service which will be assigned the TMON(Oil lubricated, +) class notation, we are certainly looking forward to experiencing the benefits it will bring towards enhancing the vessels’ safety and operational performance.”
