Germanischer Lloyd Restructures Maritime Services

Tuesday, January 16, 2007
Germanischer Lloyd has restructured its Maritime Services. In order to respond even better to client requests the classification society has optimized its workflows. As from January 2007, the Maritime Services will be subdivided into the divisions Fleet in Service, Ship Newbuilding, Maritime Systems and Components and Innovation and Strategic Research. Consisting of a number of competence centers and departments, each division has been assigned to a client group: shipowners, shipyards and supply industry. The aim is to provide the customers with individual technical support. Peter Leveringhaus, a graduate engineer, has been appointed manager of the new division Maritime Systems and Components.

Leveringhaus is a graduate in mechanical engineering and a qualified electrician. He has acquired professional experience as department head and sales manager. As a general manager he was responsible for the development and design of technical aviation components and equipment as well as for plant engineering and electronics. His division team is made up of 140 experts. Besides automation and electrical engineering, combustion engines and propulsion systems, these specialists inspect plant installations and tank safety. Also, they certify container technology, tank containers, pressure vessels and diving technology and are responsible for technical material and welding inspections.
