Conversion

  • New function or requirements?

    Conversion brings together a number of actions to allow the vessel and its equipment to optimally perform its new function or requirements. We implement:
    Different function requirements or legislation are just some examples of situations that can mean that your vessel is no longer fit for purpose. Conversion is the solution in almost all cases. Conversion means that we increase your vessel's capabilities while, at the same time, extending its life. It goes without saying that we always take into account IMO, classification bureau and flag state.
