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.
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?
