Stability advisory services

For modifications to any ship or MOU, we offer an effective solution with expert, accurate advice and proof of compliance.

Vessels undergo modifications or they change trade over time. At the same time, certain authorities require compliance with specific regulations. You need a reliable partner who knows what’s needed and how to get it.

That’s why you need DNV. We offer the entire spectrum of stability services for both newbuildings and in-service vessels or floating units.
