DNV Petroleum Services Unveils New Name

DNV Petroleum Services’ (DNVPS) independence from Det Norske Veritas (DNV) less than a year ago led to the creation of Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS), a new entity that continues to retain its global leadership in fuel management services and enduring collaborative partnership with DNV GL.

Just as its new name draws on its illustrious past, VPS, the leader for maritime testing and surveys unveiled  a new brand and visual identity that represents its maritime roots as well as the exciting future that it is forging as a young yet established company with a strong focus on customer care and unparalleled quality.

Blending of Past and Future

“Today marks an important milestone for us because our new brand identity completes our independence, legally as well as visually. Our new, signature teal blue, which is a blend of our maritime heritage colours of dark blue and green, embodies our organisation’s DNA of intrinsic quality, integrity and reliability. The tint of fresh orange glow, on the other hand, symbolises our bright future as a vibrant, young company ready to be the bridge to deep knowledge and exceptional service for our clients,” said Eirik Andreassen, CEO of VPS.

Digging Deeper, Going Further

The challenge for the maritime industry today is making decisions which optimise operations in the short term, without restricting the opportunity to sustain margin in the long term, regardless of the future landscape.

“Against this backdrop of an ever changing landscape, businesses today face mounting technological, financial, operational and regulatory challenges and risks,” added Bill Stamatopoulos, Group Commercial Director, VPS.

“Hence, we will continue to leverage our deep technical expertise and market-leading insights, and invest in innovative technology to help clients navigate the increasingly complex world of fuels so that they can focus on their core business. As a trusted partner who listens to and understands our customers’ needs, we provide an uncompromising client experience that has created new benchmarks in industry standards.”  

Benefitting Customers and Industry
VPS will leverage its unique capabilities and unmatched global network to continuously improve and expand its services to meet the ever changing, evolving needs of its clients. As the market leader in bunker fuel quality testing, VPS will delve deeper into fuel related issues onboard ships, increase the number of joint industry projects that it runs with its partners, and use its knowledge and innovations for the benefit of its customers and the maritime industry.
