Offshore Service Vessels
Offshore Service Vessels are some of the most versatile and sophisticated in the industry. Bureau Veritas’ classification and value-add services support innovation and safety.
Whether they serve oil and gas projects or the fast-growing offshore wind industry, Offshore Service Vessels (OSVs) must be efficient, resilient and high-performance. Owners seek energy-efficient designs, and features that enable fast, safe transfer of personnel and provide comfort on board.
They also need to ensure onboard equipment is safe, and meets regulatory requirements. Finally, owners and charterers need to be sure that offshore support vessels are fit for a specific purpose.
Bureau Veritas offers services to identify and manage risks, and optimize costs for your offshore service vessel. Our active role in development of regulations ensures we offer the most up-to-date industry standards.
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?
