Other services include the assessment of vessel's operational equipment with regard to load/discharge capabilities, safety and charter party obligations. In the event of an untoward incident whether oil spill, collision between vessels and/or dock or personal injury our surveyors will immediately enact notification procedures so that client's are not subject to delayed third party notice of claims.
All Petro-Marine Consult superintendents are familiar with initiating such procedures. We have a number of employees who specialize in the upgrading of vessels from "dirty" to "clean" cargoes. This entails their attending a vessel during the discharge of its oil and then remaining with it through the subsequent cleaning operation to ensure that it is in a suitable condition to load the next cargo.
This service has proved useful to both charterers and ship owners.
