Vessel Assurance

Vessel Assurance

LOC provides a bespoke vessel assurance process to determine that a vessel and / or its equipment meet contract and operation specific requirements. The assurance process may include a variety of disciplines and will vary from vessel to vessel depending on its contract specification, the work to be done and the risk it presents.

A typical objective is to determine the subject vessel is fit for purpose in all respects. This will include compliance with flag, class, operating area and charterer’s specification. Technical areas and disciplines include marine, dynamic positioning, pipe-lay, lifting, dive and ROV arrangements and helideck to name a few. LOC has developed in-house check forms to guide inspectors through the important elements of various systems to be assessed. We work closely with all parties providing a clear understandable concise summary supported by detailed technical reports. Follow-up and closure of any findings or comments is pursued to acceptance.

We offer a cost effective and efficient service with the ability to draw on our wide international network of offices to complete survey and inspection of vessels and facilities anywhere in the world.
