Lloyd’s Register has selected Greece as its new base for Maritime Performance Services (MPS) Hub.
The classification society has turned to Greece Owners, to create new ideas and initiatives for smoother and more efficient operations and improve sustainability. The Maritime Performance Services (MPS) Hub will be set in South Europe, which can act as an umbrella of the recently launched Decarbonisation Advisory Centre and Nettitude cyber-security operations centre, offering the complete portfolio of LR’s advisory and software services, enabling clients to enhance their environmental performance, facilitate fleet management and optimise the efficiency of their vessels.
McKeran said: “We have chosen to start out this initiative in Greece given the influence of its shipowners and operators in successfully navigating maritime industry trends. With uncertainty around the investment decisions that will be required within the decade ahead, a trusted guide is significant and LR takes immense pride within the strong relationships we’ve with Greek shipowners and operators and that we anticipate supporting their competitiveness as they address future challenges.”
