Bureau Veritas to broaden its services in North America
Bureau Veritas (BV) has indicated that it has taken a number of steps to expand and deepen its marine and offshore services in North America.
The launch of a new remote survey center in Miami is the latest phase in the distribution of digital services through the Bureau Veritas network, offering more regional reach for remote surveys.
The Florida-based Tropical Shipping fleet has now benefited from remote survey services on three of its vessels operating in the Caribbean.
"Using remote surveys has allowed us to meet various requirements including the ability to complete class surveys in locations where commercial flights are not servicing, as well as reducing the risk of COVID-19 exposure to our crews," said ichael Wardwell, General Manager of Marine for Tropical.
"We are very focused on client delivery for ships calling in North American ports and for clients based in the United States and Canada. Our remote survey capability further supports our already strong global network – but physical surveys remain vital. We need both whether he or she is remote or physically present, the critical experience, insight, judgement, and decisions of the Bureau Veritas surveyor remain paramount," stated Bruno Dabouis, BV’s Vice President of Southern Europe and North America.
