Hull & Machinery

LOC’s technical experts can investigate the cause, nature and extent of damage or failure, as well as offer accurate estimates of repair costs and duration, for all types of marine hull and machinery claims. Utilising our unique mix of marine engineers, master mariners, naval architects and electrical engineers based strategically in over 30 locations globally we can quickly and efficiently respond to our clients’ needs.

Managed from our four hull & machinery hubs in London, New York, Dubai and Singapore we can offer local knowledge coupled with a truly global response to provide a service tailored to reduce the cost of the claim and the cost of the casualty management.

With a focus on concise and targeted attendance and reporting we are able to offer our clients the level of details suited to their needs and the type of casualty unfolding.

With a wealth of experience in both the repair and salvage fields we are able to offer practical advice in real time resulting in a genuine upfront saving to clients. Our understanding of the relationships at play within an insurance arrangement helps us to work effectively alongside underwriters, owners, repairers, salvors, adjusters, lawyers and brokers to best protect our clients’ interests whilst simultaneously ensuring those relationships continue to grow.

Our marine insurance investigation expertise includes the following: main propulsion, DP (dynamic positioning) systems, auxiliary engines and electrical generators, main and auxiliary boilers, steering gear, machinery and machinery spaces, cargo-handling equipment and hull and vessel structure.
