As the ferry market continues to grow, vessels of all sizes must comply with safety and environmental protection standards, while improving passenger experience and optimizing cargo operation.
Many shipyards that have traditionally been involved in ferry building have full order books. Consequently, owners have started to order ships in other yards.
Energy efficiency and improved environmental performance have become top priorities, in order to reduce operational costs and meet stricter environmental regulations. This drive for compliance, combined with a desire to optimize cargo space, reduce energy consumption and improve passenger experience through innovation, has led to unconventional ship designs, which require plan approval.
Bureau Veritas has a long history of working with shipyards and vessel owners worldwide. As a market leader in LNG-fueled Roll On/Roll Off passenger ships, our engineers can provide vessel assessments, design approval, and retrofitting expertise.
