Our independence from manufacturing interests means that we can provide impartial insight and judgement on design assessments.

We assess and assure projects from inception and throughout their lifecycle, balancing requirements to make vessels compatible with overall risk and budget and ensuring compliance with regulations thanks to BMT's extensive knowledge of applicable standards.
