Dry Cargo Ships
No matter the shape, contents or special features of a dry cargo vessel, Bureau Veritas has the expertise to evaluate your ship’s design, and ensure its seaworthiness. Our aim: to ensure cargo of all sizes arrives safely at its destination.
Demand from owners for versatile, multi-purpose ships that maximize cargo capacity is higher than ever. Longevity and stability are top concerns, as the designs are complex (i.e., heavy cargo gear, multiple decks) with parts of the ship subject to high stress, fatigue, and potential mechanical damage.
Particular loading cases can also pose significant problems. When specialized cargo is carried, vessels may require customized analysis and certification to safeguard structure, stability and safety.
From conception through construction and operation, Bureau Veritas analyzes and improves your dry cargo vessels. Our classification and value-add services, supported by industry-leading software, maximize capacity while ensuring structural integrity and stability.
