Naval Ship Classification is a voluntary choice of a Navy which aims to quality, safety and cost effectiveness for the building and management of its ships. A classification Society can represent a primary technical partner for Navies and Shipyards.
RINA SERVICES can provide classification and technical advisory services for all types of naval ships and fast patrol vessels, ranging from small RIBs up to aircraft carriers, passing through patrol vessels, corvettes, frigates, LPDs, fleet tankers and mine countermeasure vessels.
RINA SERVICES has developed two sets of ad-hoc rules for the classification of military ships:
- Rules for the classification of Naval Ships (RINAMIL Rules), which are intended for the classification of steel ships, auxiliary and combatant, starting from corvettes and upwards
- Rules for the Classification of Fast Patrol Vessels, which are intended for the classification of high speed ships up to 65 m and built in steel, aluminium alloy or composite materials.
