Oil & Chemical Tankers

Structure and safety integrity for oil and chemical tankers is a must. At Bureau Veritas, we work to protect your crew and the environment.

Tanker safety: Limiting your risk

Oil and chemical tankers 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 a poorly regulated ship. With many older vessels being decommissioned, it is vital that companies prioritize the design of safe ships, built to the appropriate standards.    

Our expertise in oil and chemical tankers has evolved over 130 years, since we classed 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.
