Drawing on the extensive experience and technical expertise of our employees, DNV GL helps you to mobilise the full potential of your assets and operations. We offer technical and management support and assist clients in managing risk through high value advisory services.

Our fields of expertise

Our experts can help optimise fuel efficiency and thus maximise cost effectiveness, assess a fleet of ships in service according to defined standards or develop solutions to specific technical issues onboard ships. Furthermore, we can help identify, understand and manage each of the component risks, as well as the overall aggregate risk, in order to maximise opportunities and avoid or mitigate losses.

Shipping advisory  

We support our customers taking the right management decisions. Flexible and impact driven solutions for efficient operations, for regulation & compliance and for management of business opportunities and risks, this is what we stand for.


Assess and document response of hull structures. Verify yield, fatigue and buckling towards class rules and international standards. Solutions for reliable and cost-effective structural design. Advanced structural analysis of marine structures.

Noise & vibration  

Systematic evaluation of the noise and vibration levels on board all types of ships. Services to prevent noise and vibration problems.


Predict and assess motions and loads for ships and ocean structures. Evaluate and improve performance of hull and propeller with respect to fuel consumption. Advanced use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) for ship applications.
