That was a busy week: Three vessels successfully sampled 5 days!

The Vessel Performance Centre (VPC) has had a very busy week recently, with activities in Canada, United States, and the People’s Republic of China. We serviced three vessels for two of our clients within 5 days only!
1. Friday, 26 July at the Port of Vancouver - Canada
This has been our second service delivered in Canada. This time we served a vessel manager and repeat-customer, who knows us for our flexible and high-quality ballastwater compliance services.

2. Monday, 29 July at the Port of New Orleans - USA
Repeat-business for experienced USA inspection team too, like in Canada. We sampled ballast -, grey - and bilge water, combining all sampling activities into one single vessel visit. It is our pleasure to be able serve our launching customer, a leading drybulk vessel owner, in this very cost-efficient way without operational disruptions.

3. Wednesday, 31July at the Port of Shanghai - PRC
We are proud to add the biggest port in the world Shanghai as the first Chinese port to our global network! Our local inspection partners have proven to be more than ready after their in-house training program. We expect more Chinese locations to be added shortly, and are now officially open for business in the PRC too.

A big THANK YOU to our customers for entrusting us with their business, and to our worldwide network of colleagues and local offices to make this happen.
