 “This is a great achievement. We’re proud and grateful for the trust and good cooperation built and maintained with GSSC Huangpu Wenchong,” says Area Manager Gu Xiaoli.

DNV GL in South China
DNV GL explains that its China roots started in South China. Back in 1888, DNV GL appointed its first surveyor in Xiamen (called Amoy at that time), in Fujian Province, providing services to the merchant ships trading between China and Europe. In 1995, DNV GL established a representative office in Guangzhou.

Today, centred in Guangzhou and with 70 maritime professional staff, DNV GL Area South China provides ship classification services for over 100 newbuilding projects in eight shipyards, ship survey services for 600 vessels in operation and component and material certification services to more than 120 manufacturers.
