MANAGEMENT & CONSULTANCY
 

TECHNICAL MANAGEMENT

To operate a vessel safely and efficiently the technical considerations have to be given full attention by the ownership and the operators.       

In order to achieve this a designated Technical Superintendent will be appointed to the vessel.  Our service agreements are written to complement each vessel’s operation and management structure.    

 

A typical agreement will include the following services:

  • Initial Condition Survey 

  • Administrator of Planned Maintenance System 

  • Warranty claim management (if new necessary)

  • Budget preparation and financial analysis

  • Accounts Manager for Classification Society 

  • Authorised person for Flag State communications

  • Planning and managing dry docking and maintenance periods at shipyards

  • Regular liaison with Captain and Chief Engineer to discuss technical needs

  • Troubleshooting 

  • Assistance with Sale of vessel (if required)

  • Procurement of spare parts

  • Recruitment assistance for engineers

  • Managing insurance of vessel and insurance claim handling 

  • Audits of the Safety Management System 

  • Authorised Purchasing Agent for engine spare parts

The Technical Superintendent will also be available to cover as the vessel’s Chief Engineer.

 

PROJECT MANAGEMENT

As part of a Technical Management Agreement or as a one-off contract we can provide a Project Management service for technical projects. This could be a dry-docking, annual maintenance period or a break-down.

 

REFIT MANAGEMENT / ASSISTANCE

Included in a Technical Management Agreement or as a one-off assignment we can assist with a refit or maintenance period. 

We have experience working on vessels under refit/maintenance at Falmouth (UK), Penzance (UK), Palma (Mallorca), Viareggio (Italy), Rybovich (Florida), Fort Lauderdale (Florida), Tarragona (Spain), San Francisco and Singapore.  

 

NEW BUILD CONSULTANCY

When building a new vessel, it is important that a team with a strong technical background in the marine industry is appointed either as Consultants or as the Owner’s Representative.  This is to ensure the build is managed to prevent problems which can cost both the yard and the owner time and money.  Our team by drawing on decades of experience will be able to work with the yard from the concept stage to the warranty period and beyond.

 

Once launched it is vital that the commissioning and warranty period is managed correctly, and we will ensure this is undertaken through either a consultancy or management service.

     

Please contact us if you are at any stage during your build and let’s make it a success.
