Pioneers in Safety and Performance
At Bureau Veritas, we understand the challenges you face in designing, building and operating a truly sustainable maritime business.
Finding a partner you can trust to work with you on the development and application of new technologies is a daunting task. Track record and experience is everything.
We’ve been pioneering the safety and performance of new technologies since 1828. Whether it was assuring the first ocean going tankship, Gluckauf, back in 1886, the first Korean-built membrane LNG carrier, the 130,600 m3, 1995-built Hanjin Pyeong Taek, and the first dual-fuel diesel-electric (DFDE) LNG carrier, Global Energy, delivered in 2004, the first Ultra Large Container Ship with LNG as fuel in 2020, or developing the first rules for ammonia as fuel, Bureau Veritas Marine & Offshore has been leading industry innovation to shape a better maritime world for future generations.
As one of the world’s leading ship classification societies and offshore safety and verification bodies, we have a global network to support you worldwide. We’re by your side to help navigate the energy transition; supporting you with practical advice, tools and technology for you to make the right decisions to run a safe, sustainable and high performing business.
