As a Company our objectives are: To develop the business of providing specialist and independent consultancy services on marine transportation issues to Ship Owners, Managers, Charterers, Cargo Owners, Oil Traders and Insurance Companies; and to develop services which are relevant to the customers of the company and cost effective.

The services we provide are designed to:-

  • Minimise the risk of incidents, accidents and/or pollution.
  • Place the Owners and managers in a position to be able to demonstrate their understanding and discharge of their statutory responsibilities with respect to the safety and security of their fleet, staff and the environment.
  • Improve and maintain safety and security awareness both on board and in Owners and Managers offices.

Target market: The need for Marine, Security, Safety and Risk Assessment services is expanding, being driven by a number of factors including but not limited to:

  • High profile incidents and losses of bulk carriers and tankers.
  • Developments and changes to International Legislation.
  • Market and industry generated demand for improved safety in operations which is regularly underlined by events such as the PRESTIGE incident which caused serious oil pollution off the coasts of Spain and Portugal.
  • The need to improve the perception of the public on the competence of crews and the standard of vessel operation.
  • Security events such as the “Limburg”.

As the world fleet continues to age and older vessels continue to trade against an ever increasing background of more demanding safety legislation, both Ship Owners and Managers will, as part of their safety management system, require independent third party audit services in order to ensure that they can demonstrate to clients and potential clients that their vessels are operated safely and effectively managed and the crews which they employ are safe and proficient. Our services can be and are used as a valuable marketing tool by both Ship Owners and Managers.

  • Ship Safety and Operational Audits carried out to the highest standards of consistency and quality to cover the requirements of USCG, IMO and Port State and TMSA as well as the client’s SMS requirements.
