DNV-Classed Vessels Tally in at 5,000

Wednesday, October 09, 2002
The DNV-classed fleet of vessels is growing steadily. Exactly 5,000 vessels (ships and MOUs) are now classed by DNV which is 124 more vessels than at the end of 2001 and a total of almost 92 million gross tones, 2.4 million more than nine months ago. “We are growing according to plan, but in gross tonnage and market share,” said Ragnar Hansen, director for marketing and profiling in DNV Maritime, whose order book now at 12.8 million gross tones, 20.3 percent of all ships on order. “This volume represents two years of work for us,” says Ragnar Hansen, who also highlights the fact that many of the new ships already in DNV class are so-called high-value ships-offshore support ships and others. “We are now aiming for 100 million gross tones-a milestone we, according to our plans, intend to reach at the end of next year- or in the first part of 2004.”
