Germanischer Lloyd has been represented in Australia since 1870, initially through independent agencies and surveyors in Adelaide and Melbourne. The Society has recently opened new offices in the Australian metropolis of Sydney. The official inauguration of the offices took place on 21st May 1999, following opening of the new branch office in Fremantle on 11th May this year.
This measure has restructured the Germanischer Lloyd network in Australia, enhances the quality of service and gives GLs clients in this region a team of experts offering considerable competence and experience. In addition to classificatory support for the fleet in service, the processing of class-related work for high speed craft newbuildings at the shipyards AUSTAL Ships Pty. Ltd. and Wavemaster Int. will fall within the range of duties for the local experts.
The contact addresses of the branches in Sydney and Fremantle are as follows:
