With safety and sustainability as key concerns for the inland navigation market, Bureau Veritas mobilizes two centuries of experience to help owners comply with inland vessel regulations.
The inland navigation market is a dynamic one, contributing to local and regional economies. As a more sustainable transport option for goods and passengers, it also attracts scrutiny from national authorities to ensure increased safety and environmental responsibility. This in turn shapes priorities for vessel owners in terms of operational reliability and green credentials.
For nearly 200 years, Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore (BV) has partnered within the inland navigation sector to improve the safety and reliability of vessels, advance the energy transition, and accelerate digitalization. We operate in all major countries, with certified vessels sailing major rivers, large lakes, estuaries and coastal areas all over the world.
We have experience with all types of inland navigation vessels, with Rules for passenger ships, dry cargo and tanker vessels, pushers and launches, as well as stationary units and harbor equipment.
