For the records, SGS has been providing its underwater services to the RCCL Group for more than a decade.

As the new IMO regulations on low-sulphur fuel came into force from 1st January, RCCL announced its goal to a more energy efficient fleet on water, with best possible solution partners in their fields.

With SGS supporting our underwater operations on a 24/7/365 basis, our shore and sea staff can focus on delivering a superior service to our guests onboard with no or minimum downtime and the best environmental track record possible. the RCCL VP of Global Marine Operations, Anders Aasen said.

SGS from its side, mentioned that this agreement will enhance value to the RCCL's fleet operations.

We are consistently investing into new technology and our people, and are confident that our new online reporting platform, coupled with our growing number of expert diver/technicians (140+) and a network of fully owned offices (13 world-wide), will help RCCL’s efforts in the areas of energy efficiency, digitalization, and environmentally friendly shipping operations.
