Oil Tankers & Chemical Tankers
Safety and structural integrity for oil tankers and chemical tankers is a prerequisite. At Bureau Veritas, we work to protect your crew and the environment.
Tanker safety: Limiting your risk
Crude oil tankers, product tankers and chemical carriers walk the thin line between carrying hazardous, high pollutant cargo, and maintaining a zero-incident approach to shipping. Spills can irrevocably damage a company’s reputation, as environmental awareness and regulation increases.
Loss of life, cargo, and entire vessels are all potential consequences of poorly regulated ships. With many older vessels being decommissioned, it is vital that companies prioritize the design of safe ships, built and operated to the appropriate standards.
How we support you
Our expertise in oil tankers and chemical tankers has evolved over 130 years, since we classed Glückauf, the first-ever tanker in 1866. Our technical knowledge, regulatory insight, and continuous support make us a natural partner for owners seeking safety and reliability.
ADDRESSING CYBER SECURITY
Technological advancements such as intelligent data and real-time, connected equipment have also presented new challenges for shipping. Digitalization means that tanker managers and owners must protect their fleets from cyber-attacks. As such attacks grow in number and sophistication, cyber security must become a priority for shipping industry actors.
Bureau Veritas knows that cyber security is essential to safety management in shipping and offshore operations. For this reason, we have built on our deep knowledge of industrial control systems, smart ships, networks and telecommunications to provide best-in-class cyber security services:
- A global network of cybersecurity experts provides secure ship designs and efficient testing
- Cyber compliance, detailed notations and practical guidelines for both ships in service and newbuilds
- Industry-leading regulation compliance for BIMCO, Flag administration, IMO, IACS, OCIMF, and more
