Vessel assurance auditing & condition evaluations

When hiring a vessel and equipment, it can be difficult to know how it will perform, what condition the equipment is in and mitigate against downtime. We offer vessel assurance audits to provide an independent, third party evaluation on the condition, reliability and performance capability of lay systems. This enables assessment of any shortfalls in compliance of equipment prior to
major lay projects.

As an OEM for lay equipment, we can deliver:

  • Expert insight into the operational condition of the equipment.
  • Review of all required certification
  • Operational review of the system for the planned project
  • Witness of sea trials (where applicable)
  • Fully documented report of equipment, current state of readiness and recommendations to ensure performance

  • Finite Element Analysis (FEA)
