Guiding the Shipowner Throughout his Ship Lifecycle

The mission of the Services BU (Business Unit) is to accompany shipowners from all around the world for the modernization and renovation of their ships.

Reduction of emissions, energy optimization, modernization and valorization of ships, those are some of the technological challenges the Services BU has to face. It accompanies the shipowners from the feasibility study up to the turnkey delivery.

Involved in both the military and civil market, the Services BU is renowned for its expertise and skills on any type of ship. From merchant ships to military vessels, the BU has one and only goal: accompanying the shipowners during the entire life cycle of their fleet.
