Karadeniz selects Bureau Veritas to reclassify all of its floating power stations

We appreciate Bureau Veritas' support, cooperation and involvement in our project, delivered efficiently and innovatively.

Project Technical Coordinator Karadeniz Powership

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Karadeniz powerships are converted bulk carriers that provide electricity to countries experiencing power answer to power shortages; being green, thanks to emission control systems; easy to operate and designed for use in areas with poor infrastructure.
The concept has been a big success. Seeking to swiftly expand the geographic scope of the service and secure investment, Karadeniz sought a reputable classification body with local in-depth knowledge and experience.

SOLUTION

Karadeniz Powership chose Bureau Veritas as the classification body to reclassify its first three ships and future ones in the pipeline. Converting a bulk carrier into a power station is a major undertaking and involves among other extensive works placing several generators into the cargo hold.

During the conversion process Bureau Veritas has two surveyors permanently onboard, and several plan approval surveyors in the office. The hull structure, machinery, electricity and stability are all checked with expert attention to detail. Surveyors verify the conversion process, trials and testing phase, which enables them to deliver certification to applicable Bureau Veritas class rules. This ensures greater accuracy and significantly shorter delivery times.

BENEFITS

Karadeniz Powership requested the transfer of classification to Bureau Veritas because of its strong experience in shipbuilding and conversion works and also because it has a well-established plan approval office in Turkey.

Handling the project locally makes communications much easier. Bureau Veritas' ability to review plans straightaway, unique in Turkey, saves precious time for the client and contributes to reducing costs. Additionally, the client has been able to attract new investors, thanks to Bureau Veritas’ good reputation in the industry.
