World leader in testing, inspection and certification Bureau Veritas has opened its first remote survey center, located in the major maritime hub and port city of Rotterdam. The center is part of BV’s North European Zone head office and BV’s Zone Marine Operations Center. During the development process different operating modes were tested successfully in different modes of connectedness: offline, partly on line and fully online. These different modes reflect the need for different levels of connectedness. In the latter mode – the fastest and most comprehensive remote survey mode, the onboard client uses connected devices to show the ship’s condition in real time to a remote surveyor and this means a survey in real time can be closed at the end of a call.

Significant benefits to clients include: speed of response and no travel or waiting time; optimization in the decision making process thanks to livestreaming solutions; continuous improvement in the quality of service; and cost control through overall reductions in travel time and arrangements.

The combination of remote surveyors, the marine operational center surveyors and management support as well as close proximity to plan approval surveyors will allow the Remote Survey Center, equipped with latest technology hardware and software tools, to deliver a high value service to clients. Laurent Leblanc: ‘This remote capability is really just starting to make an impact on our clients. It is a vital development for the future of classification.’
