Oil Tankers & Chemical Tankers
Safety and structural integrity for oil tankers and chemical tankers is a prerequisite. At Bureau Veritas, we work to protect your crew and the environment.
Crude oil tankers, product tankers and chemical carriers walk the thin line between carrying hazardous, high pollutant cargo, and maintaining a zero-incident approach to shipping. Spills can irrevocably damage a company’s reputation, as environmental awareness and regulation increases.
Loss of life, cargo, and entire vessels are all potential consequences of poorly regulated ships. With many older vessels being decommissioned, it is vital that companies prioritize the design of safe ships, built and operated to the appropriate standards.
Our expertise in oil tankers and chemical tankers has evolved over 130 years, since we classed Glückauf, the first-ever tanker in 1866. Our technical knowledge, regulatory insight, and continuous support make us a natural partner for owners seeking safety and reliability.
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?
