By Marek Grzybowski

The Polish Shipping Register signed a cooperation agreement with the Shipping Register of Ukraine. Last year, the Polish Maritime Technology Forum and the Ukrainian Maritime Cluster took the initiative to modernize the shipbuilding industry in Ukraine.

Our visit is aimed at deepening relations with the Polish Shipping Register and our other partners, said Serhiy Gursky, director general of the Shipping Register of Ukraine informed GospodarkaMorska.pl

We have great opportunities to support partners from Ukraine. The need to build many new units was reported. PRS can support the construction of hydrographic vessels, tugboats, large specialized LNG tankers and ropaxes in certification supervision. PRS may classify these ships together with the Shipping Register of Ukraine. The common classification will provide additional support to the Ukrainian Shipping Register on its way to joining the IACS association, said Henryk Śniegocki, president of the Polish Shipping Register.
