Since opening its Greek office in 2010, the Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass) has made inroads into the Greek shipping market. Based in Piraeus, the IRClass office has been actively engaged with Greek shipyards and owners to offer its full range of classification services.
It has recently certified three Ro-Ro vessels in Greece for the Theodoropoulos shipyard and has also taken several other vessels into Class.
Currently, IRClass is working on seeking authorisation from Greek maritime authorities to survey and certify all types of Greek flagged vessels.
To add focus to the Greek market, IRClass MD Suresh Sinha spoke at Capital Link’s 10th Annual Greek Shipping Forum on Friday (22nd February) at the Hilton Athens hotel.
“The Greek maritime market is important to IRClass and our expansion strategy is to focus our services in this region due to the large concentration of ship owners. We look forward to networking and meeting with the Greek shipping community and build on the business relationships which our team in Piraeus has developed”, said Mr Sinha.
