As dredgers increase in size, power, precision and sophistication, Bureau Veritas helps you innovate safely and achieve compliance.
Dredgers are built to fulfill a range of needs, from maintenance dredging and keeping waterways navigable, to land reclamation and activities relating to port construction, coastal engineering and offshore subsea construction.
As owners seek greater productivity, dredgers have increased in size and power, creating new demands in terms of safety and compliance. Owners are also taking advantage of dynamic positioning for dredgers to increase precision and reduce maneuvering time, while seeking solutions that improve fuel efficiency and reduce emissions.
Bureau Veritas is the leading classification society for dredgers. We are at the forefront of innovation, classing a wide range of designs with various state-of-the-art propulsion systems.
Bureau Veritas is the classification society of choice for over a third of dredgers in existence, making us the leader in this highly specialized market segment. Our history of classing dredgers goes back a long way: we published our first technical requirements for dredgers in 1909.
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?
