Demand for gas and increasing interest in renewables is breathing new life into traditional offshore and marine energy markets. Bureau Veritas helps clients to achieve safe construction and operation, whilst ensuring cost-effective and sustainable production.



Offshore actors demand flexible solutions alongside technical expertise. Driven by the need to supply sustainable and environmental-friendly energy, engineering companies, manufacturers and operators must develop innovative and cost-effective solutions. While safety of people and environment remains the industry’s top priority, it is vital to reduce lifecycle cost and maximise the availability of assets in order to make oil, gas or electricity affordable worldwide.


We work closely with clients to class and certify any asset within an offshore field or farm, supporting offshore actors to improve safety, optimise costs throughout their assets’ lifecycle and reduce risks during operations. By investing in R&D and developing new standards, we also promote the business model and performance of marine renewable energy projects.
