Marine Warranty


Together with our Associates, we act in the interest of International Underwriters as marine warranty surveyors providing third party independent review and approval of procedures and analysis in a variety of high value and high risk offshore installation and decommissioning projects.

To this end, we have at our disposal the finest team of master mariners, chief engineers, naval architects, structural engineers and geotechnical engineers, combined with a fine suit of computer software to draw upon.
