International classification society Bureau Veritas has issued its annual group global Activity Report and its separate Marine and Offshore Business Review.

The Bureau Veritas 2012 Activity Report provides a global picture of the group's performance and key achievements in 2012 and highlights the diversity of services delivered. The group revenues grew strongly in 2012 to Euro 3.9bn, up 16%. The group is active globally in eight major sectors: marine, industry, in-service inspection, construction, certification, commodities, consumer products and government services.

The Activity Report can be downloaded from www.bureauveritas.com, or a PDF copy can be requested from john@merlinco.com.

The Marine and Offshore Business Review highlights the importance of scale in the marine and offshore businesses and shows how BV’s fleet grew to 10,152 ships in class last year, with significant growth in key areas such as offshore LNG, energy conservation for shipping and the use of gas as a fuel. The review details the work of BV’s Marine and Offshore teams in each area of shipping and offshore and highlights key successes, such as the building and delivery to BV class of the world’s largest container vessel.

Philippe Donche-Gay, Executive Vice President and head of Bureau Veritas Marine and Offshore Division said, “Size does not have to mean distance from the client. In our highly globalised industries size is imperative to deliver customer intimacy. In a global world you have to be big to appear small everywhere. We have the global footprint and the means to support a network much denser than anyone else in the business. So we can be close to owners and yards wherever they are.”

Copies of the Marine and Offshore Business Review can be downloaded from www.veristar.com or requested in PDF or print form by e mailing john@merlinco.com.
