Damage surveys
This is to report on the nature, extent and cause of hull damage
Draft surveys
It is a calculation of the weight of cargo loaded or unloaded to or from a ship from measurements of changes in its displacement. The technique is based on Archimedes’ principle. The procedure is standardized by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe for the measurement of coal cargoes.
Bunker surveys
The survey is carried out to measure and ascertain the quantity of Bunker on board at the specific time:

  • BQS-quantity measurement inspection services for marine fuels, issuing detailed bunker survey reports to confirm fuel delivery and report bunker fuel shortages.
  • 221B or Bunker Detective Survey-are carried out to find concealed (hidden) bunker fuel onboard.

On / Off Hire Surveys
A complete survey of a vessel to determine its condition prior to it being placed On-Hire/taken Off-Hire.

On-Hire Surveys / Off-Hire Surveys of vessels undertaken either before the vessel is delivered into a charter, or redelivered from a charter. The survey report should include a detailed description of a vessel’s cargo spaces/deck areas structural condition, cargo space cleanliness, bunkers on board, listing of the vessel’s statutory certificates, portable securing equipment, etc.

When discrepancies/differences arise in a bunker delivery / redelivery, the experience of the Surveyor should be able to find the error, if any, or to give out the right figures for third party agreement.

The purpose of these On-Hire Surveys / Off-Hire Surveys is principally to determine the extent of damage, other than fair wear and tear, which may have occurred to the ship between two dates, usually those of the commencement and termination of charter. Whilst the determination of damage is the principle purpose of the two requisite reports, one being at the “on hire” survey and the other at the “off hire” survey, there are often three other requirements. These are generally:

  • The checking of documents and certificates
  • The establishment of quantities of fuel and stores on board
  • Sometimes the establishment of the cleanliness of the cargo spaces.

Holds’ Inspection
It is an inspection to verify that the ship’s holds are ready to receive the cargo. The hold inspections consider a number of factors that may affect the quality of the cargo. Our capable and experienced inspectors:

  • Ensure that the hold is free of rust or paint chips that could contaminate or discolor your cargo
  • Provide assurance that the hold is free of previous cargo remnants, including inaccessible areas
  • Look for evidence of wooden partitions or dunnage that may react with cargo and ignite
  • Examine the ship’s log for evidence of previous cargo containing materials that may put your cargo at risk
  • Pay special attention to previous cargos including seed or grain that may lead to consequences due to quarantine requirements
  • Check for any signs of moisture or previous water damage in the hold or bilge.

Hatch Inspection
The purpose of this inspection is to verify the water tightness of the hatches. Improper ship’s hatch cover seals and securing arrangements account for a high percentage of cargo defects and rejections. These hatch inspections provide evidence that the condition of the hatch covers does not pose a threat to the cargo. We will do following:

  • Visually inspect hatch covers on arrival for water tightness and proper operation
  • Look for obvious damage, holes and leak points that may jeopardize the quality of the cargo
  • Conduct Chalk and Hose tests for objective assessment and verification.
