Over the last decade LITEHAUZ has carried more than 130 projects for clients in 20 countries. Our experts have worked with companies in shipping, oil and gas, equipment supply and with authorities and international organisations.

We deal with “everything environmental in shipping” to ensure the sustainable operation of the World’s fleet and we have a wide experience. In the following list we have left out some of the most frequent projects regarding compliance of Ballast Water Management Systems, Inventories of Hazardous Materials, and the Same Risk Area concept – the latter was developed by LITEHAUZ and it is now a part of the IMO Guideline G7 regarding ballast water.
