ISTANBUL OFFICE

ISTANBUL OFFICE

Our Istanbul office was established in 2006 in partnership with Cem Ertem, the foermer Director of Bureau Veritas Turkish & Middle East operations.

The Istanbul operations have beem jointly developed by Cem Ertem and Dimitris Kardiakopoulos who was practically based in Istanbul between 2006 and mid 2009.

Due to the fact that Istanbul and Tuzla have become the main repair and ship building zone of the Mediterranean region (and not only) for major casualty damage repairs, the office has exponentially evolved over the last 10 years, counting today 3 Surveyors and 2 Senior Surveyors, namely Giray Kincal and Tugrul Ak, who have also recently become local partners.
