Bureau Veritas launches new division
Bureau Veritas has created Bureau Veritas Solutions Marine & Offshore.
PARIS – Bureau Veritas has created Bureau Veritas Solutions Marine & Offshore (BV Solutions M&O).
This combines services and personnel from within the company, offering technical services and solutions to clients in the offshore and marine markets, with a focus on four service lines:
- Engineering& Risk Solutions
- Asset Management Solutions
- Regulatory Solutions
- Assurance Solutions.
Among the priorities to support the offshore market are hull optimization services and deployment of BV’sVeristar AIM 3D asset management software.
Hull optimization is intended to help ship owners, designers, and shipyards make the best choices based on hydrodynamic studies, energy modeling and use of BV’s software and analysis.
Veristar AIM 3D is said to combine a digital twin of offshore or marine assets with smart data for the design, development, and implementation of the operational lifecycle.
It reflects and predicts the condition of any asset, helping the client take smarter decisions based on better visibility of the asset’s condition and performance, BV claims.
Paul Shrieve, the company’s vice president Offshore and Services, said: “The establishment of BV Solutions M&O… allows us to introduce our experience in testing, inspection, and certification to deliver client value at a much earlier stage in project life. Efficiencies identified early on in the lifecycle can generate significant savings later.
“Our clients face increasing regulatory pressure and environmental obligations. They need to boost their performance and deal with complex risks.”
Matthieu De Tugny, COO, Marine & Offshore at Bureau Veritas said that the establishment of BV Solutions M&O is in response to clients’ requests for services that go beyond pure compliance assessment to support performance.
