ClassNK opens Office in Charleston
Leading classification society ClassNK (Chairman and President: Noboru Ueda) has opened a new exclusive survey office in Charleston, USA with operations beginning 1 January 2016.
Charleston is a major port city located in South Carolina and home to one of the fastest growing ports in the USA. It has the deepest channels in the southeast region and plans are underway to increase its depth to 52 feet by 2019 to accommodate the ever-increasing size of containerships. Once the project is complete, Charleston will become the deepest harbor on the east coast.
The Charleston office joins an expanding network of ClassNK survey offices along the coast including in New York, Norfolk and Miami.
ClassNK will continue to expand its survey offices worldwide in order to meet its clients’ requests and provide timely and high quality services.
