Anderson Chaplow joined Lloyd’s Register in 2006 after completing a Bachelor of Mechanical Engineering (Hons) in Naval Architecture at The University of New South Wales, Australia. Since then he has worked for Lloyd's Register in New Zealand, Australia, South Korea and now the UK.
Anderson is assigned to the NSASS team as Lloyd’s Register EMEA’s Project Manager, working with the NSASS Alliance members to manage the implementation of the service. Anderson works with Tim Lear to manage the delivery and development of the NSASS framework and associated tasks and takes the lead on those tasks relating to the Naval Ship Code and Naval Ship Rules.
Anderson joined Lloyd’s Register EMEA’s Naval Liaison Office in 2016 and is responsible for identifying, developing and delivering new products and processes to support UK MoD operations. This involves working with specialist areas of the MoD such as the Naval Authority Group and Project Teams, together with the research community, to prepare proposals for changes to Naval Class and the Naval Ship Rules and to undertake technical activities such as authoring of reports and standards, and project management of consultancy work.
Anderson's experience within Lloyd's Register includes the direct management of new construction projects, including naval vessels; equipment and component inspections; and the survey and management of in-service naval and commercial vessels. His knowledge of ship structures has been developed through plan approval and survey roles and includes extensive experience in the application of the Rules to vessels under construction and in-service – particularly damage, defects and repairs.
Anderson has a young family and spends most of his spare time with them out exploring the countryside.
