Bureau Veritas Augments Fleet

Monday, June 20, 2011

The Bureau Veritas classed fleet has grown strongly during 2011 and in June passed 80 m gt. Today, 9,663 sea-going vessels and 1,853 inland navigation ships are classed by Bureau Veritas. The growth has been led by the delivery of 320 new vessels and the transfer in of 198 vessels in service since the beginning of the year.

Today the fleet is well balanced in tonnage, with 37 per cent bulk carriers, 20 per cent tankers, 8 per cent gas carriers, 5 per cent passenger vessels, 14 per cent containerships and 16 per cent specialized and offshore vessels.

Significant new additions to the BV class fleet in the last month include two capesize bulk carriers built in China for Greek shipowner Centrofin Management Inc and for American shipowner Foremost Group, and the two 75,200 dwt bulk carriers Good Luck and Good Wish built in China for Chinese shipowner Pacific Wealth Shipping Co. Ltd. These vessels joined the BV class fleet on the day it passed the 80 m gt mark. On the same day, Greek shipmanager Quintana Ship Management transferred the 82,200 dwt bulk carrier Q Jake, delivered in March 2011, to BV class.
