ABS has played a pivotal role within the maritime safety regime for more than 150 years and was the first classification society to provide services in the offshore sector.
A commitment to research, service delivery and technical innovation enables the organization’s extensive global network of professional surveyors and engineers to provide support from initial design, through design approval, during construction and throughout the operation of maritime vessels/units.
Exceptional service delivery underpins day-to-day operations at ABS, directing investment in R&D as well as product and service development. Regional R&D facilities, including the ABS Singapore Offshore Technology Center, focus applied global research resources on a broad range of local technology challenges. The objective is to leverage local knowledge and experience to develop global solutions.
As the industry continues to evolve, ABS is adapting to provide continued reliable service, offering technical guidance for new construction and existing vessel conversion, and regularly issuing new and updated Rules and Guides to help ship designers, builders, owners and operators meet international regulations, and working with industry to develop innovative solutions.
With owners and within shipyards across the Middle East and throughout the world, ABS is working with industry to offer guidance as operating frontiers change.
