Busbar trunking systems
|Publication Date:||1 July 2019|
This CP gives a description of the procedures and requirements related to documentation, design and type testing applicable for TA of bus trunk.
This CP does not set the design requirements to the bus trunk. TA is based on compliance with design requirements given in the DNV GL rules and/or other regulations and standards. The CP describes the applicable design requirements and how to document compliance with the requirements in order to obtain a TA certificate for the equipment. This includes, where relevant, technical requirements for how the type tests shall be performed.
DNVGL-RU-SHIP Pt.4 Ch.8 requires that busbar trunking systems are DNV GL type approved, and TA in accordance with this CP is thus mandatory for equipment to be installed on DNV GL classed vessels.
A TA certificate in accordance with this CP will confirm compliance with the requirements in the DNV GL rules as specified in [1.1]. The TA certificate will not confirm compliance with requirements in other parts of the rules. In case additional requirements in other parts of the rules shall be covered by the TA certificate, this shall be specified in the application for TA and will be stated in the TA certificate.
