Naval Ships

Navies and governments around the world demand efficient, resilient ships for their fleets. With Bureau Veritas’ expertise, your naval vessels can meet international and national standards of safety and performance.

Leadership in safety design for Navies

Naval vessel operations often require specialized equipment and unique ship layouts. The rigorous safety standards for patrol and combat vessels are regularly updated, and navies cannot risk falling behind. Construction quality is of the utmost importance, and older vessels may require dismantling to make way for newer models.
Above all, the safety of crew members creates a need for optimized ship design and thorough review of vessels during the construction phase. 

How we support you

Bureau Veritas supports navies with dedicated classification Rules based on our experience across the wider shipping industry. We help you reconcile military specifications with safety objectives via design review and technical assessment of your vessels.
