We provide expert services on claims 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 the skill set and experience to support clients in the investigation and resolution of damages to port and terminal infrastructure.

Key areas of expertise include:

  • Evaluation of the cause, nature and extent of damages, identification and reporting of associated/relevant risks
  • Organising and supervising underwater survey inspections
  • Advice on repair methodologies and repair costs
  • Advice on alternative temporary repair options
  • Assessment and advice on consequential losses
  • Support in sourcing and procurement 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
  • Advisory on the appropriate contract set up for the repair works

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.
