As tugboats and escort vessels aim for efficiency, Bureau Veritas’ offers industry-leading Rules and services to support compliance, performance and environmental protection.
The shipping industry’s most recent demands for tug performance have facilitated an array of new designs and technologies, while emphasizing the need for reducing environmental damage. Operational requirements for tugs are constantly expanding, with high expectations for the reliability and efficiency of vessels and crew members. Additionally, authorities and offshore terminal operators require increased availability of escort and offshore terminal tugs to assist ever larger ships. These vessels often operate in severe weather conditions, including icy and Arctic waters.
Bureau Veritas is the #1 classification partner for tugboats, dedicated to the safety of your vessels. We actively participate in the development of international shipping standards, and introduce Rules that anticipate the growing demands of innovative vessel design.
