Lloyd’s Register is to review key design drawings, calculations and safety features for Blue Star Line’s Titanic II project, to ensure the vessel complies with relevant regulations.

The company, which provides independent assurance to transportation companies, will ensure Titanic II meets classification rules and current Safety of Life at Sea requirements.

“Working with Blue Star Line and Titanic II’s designers Deltamarin, Lloyd’s Register will help ensure the vessel will be compliant with all the current statutory and classification regulations,” said Paul Nichols, lead specialist at Lloyd’s Register’s Passenger Ship Support Centre in the UK. “We enhance the safety of life at sea, property and the environment by helping our clients to ensure the quality construction and operation of critical infrastructure.”

Titanic II is currently under construction at the state-owned CSC Jinling Shipyard in Nanjing, Jiangsu province, China and is scheduled for delivery in 2016. The vessel will then embark on its maiden voyage, retracing the original route from Southampton, UK, to New York, US.

“I would like to welcome Lloyd’s Register to the Titanic II team and look forward to working closely with them on this landmark project,” said Cliver Palmer, chairman of Blue Star Line. “Titanic II will be a regular feature on the transatlantic route between the UK and US.”
