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.
Intelligent data and real-time, connected equipment have made a world of difference for dredger operations. At the same time, digitalization also poses new problems for the shipping industry. Sophisticated—and often successful—cyber-attacks are a reality worldwide. As a result, ship owners and managers must understand that cyber security is integral to safety management in shipping and offshore operations.
Bureau Veritas takes cyber security seriously, identifying it as a key challenge for shipping. Our next-level cyber security services leverage decades of expertise across the maritime industry, including smart ships, networks, telecommunications, ship design, and safety and security of ship operations.
