ABS donates $3m for New Jersey offshore engineering laboratory

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Offshore classification services company American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has donated $3m to the Stevens Institute of Technology, New Jersey (US), to create a new civil, mechanical and naval engineering laboratory complex.

The laboratory will be used for research in robotics, underwater systems, land- and water-based vehicles and ocean and weather sensors.

A new 25,000 square foot facility will be constructed.

Stevens Institute of Technology was founded in 1870, and was involved in ship design during the Second World War

"It is an honour to contribute to the long-term success of the marine industry through an investment in a facility that will focus on cross-disciplinary real-world problems," said ABS Chairman Robert D. Somerville. "Without question, this laboratory complex will be a proving ground where enterprising students can develop the skills they need to take on the many technical challenges ahead."

'The new facility will provide Stevens students with access to cutting-edge technologies so they can explore the frontiers of many vital science and engineering disciplines, especially those that contribute to the safety and security of our nation's maritime resources,' said Stevens President Nariman Farvardin.
