Rotterdam, October 10th 2022.
DDC is granted acceptance from DNV (Det Norske Veritas) to operate as an Approved Service Provider in the maritime sector and perform survey using remote inspection techniques (RIT) as an alternative means for close-up survey of the structure of ships and mobile offshore units, in accordance with Class Programme DNVGL-CP-0484.
Remote inspections allow for faster and safer ways to survey ships or mobile offshore platforms. Ship owners and operators that are subject to DNV approval on classifications are ensured that DDC meets common requirements in terms of qualification, capability and delivery. DDC's teams can easily be deployed from our office based in the heart of Port of Rotterdam when ships are anchoring or docking.
Feye de Zwart (founder DDC) says; "Remote Inspections are more and more embraced by ship owners and Class Certification providers, as data can be gathered safer, faster, more complete and results are fully digital available for future reference".
DDC's certificate AOSS0000JRJ can be easily found on DNV's listing of approved service suppliers .
