Lloyd's Register Type Approval LOCOPIAS extended

Posted on January 25, 2018

SARC is pleased to announce the extension of LR (Lloyd’s Register) Type Approval for their LOCOPIAS on-board loading computer software. This approval certifies LOCOPIAS products for use in LR class ships in the (damage) stability and longitudinal strength of the vessel.

“We are very happy with this certification,” said Herbert Koelman, Managing Director of SARC. “Not only does this help support our ship building and engineering customers, as well as their suppliers, but all of our customers.” Koelman explains, “Having passed the stringent LR approval, is a statement of the durability and reliability of our products.”

LOCOPIAS is on-board loading computer software. Derived from the PIAS ship design software, it uses the same proven technology to achieve optimum loading within the limits for strength, stability, draft, etc. This ensures maximum safety of the vessel, it’s crew, cargo or passengers and the environment.
