Collisions & Groundings

Collisions & Groundings

LOC is frequently instructed to assess the damage resulting from vessel collisions and groundings on behalf of the vessel’s owners or insurers. Our experienced master mariners, marine engineers and naval architects can attend the vessel to investigate the cause of the incident, assess the stability and strength of the vessel in its damaged state, and provide independent advice in relation to salvage operations. Once the nature and extent of damages are known we are able to estimate the likely cost of repairs and monitor and report throughout the repair process.

Should the collision or grounding become the subject of litigation proceedings, LOC is able to provide expert evidence. We are able to analyse and interpret electronic navigational data, AIS (Automatic Identification System) data to replicate collision scenarios and meteorological conditions at the time of the casualty. LOC experts can provide evidence on ship handling, pollution control, repairs and repair costs and the nature and extent of the damage. We are able to investigate any ship collision such as the speed and angle of the blow and can use 3D modelling and video overlay of incident modelling.
