PRE-DOCKING INSPECTION SURVEY
Most client or class specific surveys can be executed even before the respective vessel is even in dry-dock. For vessel owners this means that they have a comprehensive picture of the vessel condition before a maintenance period is started.Our aim in these cases is to inspect the vessel on all relevant class and owner specific items and identify the problem areas. If needed we then follow up with a full renewal report stating the location, size and estimated weight of the renewals.
This way we can prevent a lot of unexpected work that needs to be done in dry dock and this in turn can minimize additional expenses.
