The Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass), a leading classification society, has opened offices in Paradip, a major maritime port town on the east coast of India, and in Guwahati, the largest city in northeast Indian state of Assam.

The opening of an office in Guwahati follows the recent announcement on a joint initiative with the Assam Government in further developing the state’s inland water transport (IWT) system to improve commuter safety.

Paradip is amongst the leading ports in the country and several infrastructure projects under Sagarmala program are planned around the port.

The Paradip office was opened to meet long standing demand from the industry, said IR Class. This office will serve the ship owners, ports and drydocking repair facilities within proximity, as well as neighbouring ports including Dhamra and others in the region.

K Bhardwaj, Head (Operations) said on 11 Feb 2019: ”Establishing presence in both Paradip and Guwahati has been a key part of our strategic development priorities, and this underlines IRClass’ commitment towards servicing its clients in the eastern part of India as we strive to provide high quality classification services to the maritime community in this region.”

The new offices strengthen IR Class’ network across India and joins the 24 other existing offices.
