Container ship sizes have increased dramatically as owners and operators seek efficiency. Bureau Veritas helps you meet the specific challenges associated with ultra-large box ships.
STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY FOR ULTRA-LARGE BOX SHIPS
World trade is reliant on safe, efficient container ships. Clients of container shipping companies want a fast, competitive service: container shipping lines and owners seek to lower costs and comply with environmental regulations. To achieve these aims, owners are ordering ever-larger ships exploring clean fuel solutions: but these evolutions present major technical and safety challenges.
HOW WE SUPPORT YOU
Bureau Veritas’ Rules for containerships are among the most up-to-date in the industry, designed to help you optimize cargo capacity and gain operational flexibility. Our presence in key shipbuilding locations and ports supports your vessel’s safety.
ADDRESSING CYBER SECURITY
Intelligent data and real-time, connected equipment have been of incredible benefit to the shipping industry, but digitalization has also presented new challenges. Cyber attacks have shown that current security solutions aren’t necessarily a match for sophisticated hackers. Consequently, shipping industry actors can no longer afford a ‘business as usual’ approach. Now cyber security should be considered essential to safety management in shipping and offshore operations.
To provide best-in-class cyber security services, Bureau Veritas leverages expertise across the maritime industry, including safety and security of ship operations and ship design, industrial control systems, smart ships, networks and telecommunications. Here is how we do it:
