Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) carriers
Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the transition fuel of choice for marine stakeholders as the world moves towards net-zero emissions. Global demand for LNG has led to huge investments in production, infrastructure and the international development of distribution networks, fueling increased demand for LNG shipping.
Still, LNG carriers face a range of technical, structural and safety challenges, as vessels require sophisticated technology to transport and maintain their liquefied cargo. This in turn makes LNG shipping a capital-intensive business from both a CAPEX and OPEX perspective.
A pioneer in the classification of LNG carriers, Bureau Veritas has over five decades of experience helping clients find safe, reliable and efficient solutions. Our expertise enables us to class ships of all sizes and LNG containment systems, ensuring safety, improving environmental performance and protecting ships sailing in harsh environments.
Intelligent data and real-time, connected equipment have revolutionized LNG Carrier operations, but digitalization has also created significant vulnerabilities. Cyber-attacks are increasing in sophistication and frequency worldwide, without a proportionate increase in awareness in the shipping industry.
To help our clients rise to this challenge, Bureau Veritas has developed world-class cyber security services. Our services leveraging our expertise across the maritime industry, in smart ships, networks, telecommunications, ship design, and safety:
