Preparation of Operational Procedures

Our surveyors are experienced in preparing and reviewing offshore procedures, supporting engineering calculations and analysis for marine operations. This may include reviewing or making recommendations on the type of equipment to be used, proposed methods, limiting operational conditions, structural capacity, floating stability of vessels, quay strength, crane rigging capacity and proposed contingency measures for each operation. This work is performed by naval architects, structural engineers, marine surveyors and Master Mariners with many years’ experience in developing, reviewing and carrying out these operations.

Transport & Installation Approvals
Inspections of seafastening arrangements, cargo’s structural integrity, vessel’s stability and strength, voyage plans and proposed route, limiting design conditions, and the safe transportation of cargo, typically from the fabrication to installation site can be carried out. Cargo may include jackets, decks, jack-ups, semi-submersible units, process equipment and other such heavy structures and project equipment.
Loadout, transportation and installation approvals may be prepared or reviewed for all aspects of the installation operation. Surveyors will ensure that the operation is conducted as planned and in accordance with the agreed procedures. Our Surveyors have a high level of experience in these operations and will help to ensure everything proceeds smoothly.

Oil Rig Consultants
Rig move data for the oil rig and location will be reviewed and an assessment is made of the suitability of the rig at the proposed location. Suitability surveys of the rig and towing vessels will be carried out. A towage certificate of approval is issued for the rig move once preparations have been completed and the rig is ready to start the tow.
The Tow Master attends onboard during the rig move and will monitor jacking, transit, pre-load or anchoring from departure until the rig is safely installed at the new location.
