Port

We provide expert services relating to ports and terminals. Our goal is always to protect our clients’ interests and to minimise their financial losses. LOC’s civil engineers, supported by personnel of other technical disciplines, have accumulated unprecedented experience in the investigation and resolution of damages to port and terminal structures.

Key areas of expertise include:

  • Evaluation of the cause, nature and extent of damages
  • Organising and supervising underwater survey inspections
  • Repair methodologies and repair costs
  • Alternative temporary repair options
  • Assessment and advice on consequential losses
  • Sourcing of specialised second hand equipment to reduce long lead times on ordering new replacement items
  • Organising and managing repairs, including preparation of tender documentation, bid evaluation and contract supervision

LOC is very experienced in dealing with P&I and H&M clubs and their legal representatives. We can support and advise port operators during the initial negotiations with the vessel’s interests. This may include an assessment of the extent of damage and provision of an estimate of the costs of repairs for the purpose of negotiating security from the vessels interests.
