Oil & Chemical Tankers

Bureau Veritas advises owners on measures to reduce emissions and fuel consumption. We assist you in understanding and preparing for new regulations.

 

Oil & chemical tankers are high-standard vessels that require great flexibility in order to carry a wide range of difficult cargo types (i.e.: high temperature cargo in asphalt carriers or hazardous and flammable cargo in chemical tankers).

As a result, elevated safety standards are required for transporting these products.

 

As an owner or a shipyard, you are subject to the effects of the Emission Control Areas (ECAs) which require action starting at the design stage.


 

Bureau Veritar offers a wide range of solutions:

 

Why choose Bureau Veritas?

 

  • We are at the forefront of CSR-H

Bureau Veritas has worked hard within IACS on the harmonization of the Common Structural Rules (CSR-H).
 

Bureau Veritas Rules 2000 were the first classification rules to include requirements regarding ultimate strength and took into consideration a probabilistic approach to hull structure.


 

  • Specific training

Bureau Veritas has trained staff in all major shipbuilding countries who can work with yards towards CSR-H compliant designs. We additionally have organized training sessions for major shipbuilders.


 

  • LNG for fuel and energy efficiency

There is growing interest in LNG as fuel for oil and chemical tankers. Bureau Veritas is involved in the 2-strokes dual fuel installation for chemical tanker newbuildings, the first dual fuel application for newbuilt asphalt carriers. Furthermore, we are also working on several chemical and oil tanker conversions. 

 

Additionally, the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) is a key issue for shipyards and shipowners and Bureau Veritas is working in close cooperation to provide suitable advisory services.
