Growing demand for cruise ships and the opening of new markets is leading to vessels that are larger, and more sophisticated and specialized. Bureau Veritas ensures cruise ship safety as well as comfort, energy efficiency and environmental compliance.
The market for passenger ships has vastly expanded in the last decade, as luxury and expedition cruises have grown in number and popularity. Ship owners and yards must balance the building and operation of larger, more sophisticated ships with safety and environmental performance. They must also consider comfort and reduced energy consumption. In addition, the popularity of expedition ships for polar adventures has led to the development of dedicated and technically advanced ships able to operate in Arctic waters.
Bureau Veritas provides tailor-made services to support vessel compliance with safety and environmental requirements. We help clients minimize cruise ship environmental impact, and achieve energy consumption and cost savings, while increasing passenger comfort and adapting to the specific needs of harbors and shipyards.
+20% Five-year growth in passenger numbers
Real-time, connected equipment and intelligent data is emerging as shipping’s most valuable assets. At the same time, we’ve also seen how digitalization brings new challenges. Cyber-attacks against a number of players have revealed that the security solutions currently in place aren’t necessarily a match for sophisticated hackers. As a consequence, a ‘business as usual’ approach is no longer affordable and cyber security should be considered integral to safety management in shipping and offshore operations.
At Bureau Veritas we have built on our expertise across the maritime industry, safety and security of ship operations and ship design, industrial control systems, smart ships, and networks and telecommunications to provide best in class cyber security Services. How do we do it?
