VPC expands its VGP services –to Gibraltar, Russia, Brazil and South-Africa

Last week the Peterson Vessel Performance Centre (VPC) has successfully completed the shipboard sampling for Vessel General Permit (VGP) compliance in 4 new locations: Port of Gibraltar (United Kingdom), Port of Santos (Brazil), Ports of Ust-Luga / St. Petersburg (Russia), and Port of Durban (South Africa) are now onboard also.
Vessel Performance Centre supports its customers with one single contact, one of our experts in Rotterdam (The Netherlands). This central team of experts coordinates the complete compliant sampling, testing and analysis in all key ports and trade routes globally, across our network of 40+ locations.

Any vessel that calls a US port and is equipped with a Ballast-water treatment system requires water discharge sampling for its VGP. Our certified service covers all water types: ballast, gray, bilge, sewage, potable and scrubber exhaust wash-water.
