1. Best Equipment

Trusted and high quality equipment is essential for safe, secure and reliable sailing. That is why the International Maritime Organization emphasizes that the functionality, performance and design of equipment carried on board must meet certain safety requirements and be compliant with the approved certifications where necessary. During any incident the main goal is to save lives and the ship. Proper standardized equipment provides the maximum possibilities in achieving this goal for the Vessel crew. Compromising quality of equipment can lead to unpleasant outcomes. This is why professional assistance is needed to determine and asses any risks before an incident happens. But here the most important fact is selecting a professional company with excellent knowledge in all relevant IMO regulations including SOLAS and Load Lines Conventions. For any vessel valuing lives and business the best equipment complying to the correct standards is a definite blessing!


2. Marine Safety Solution

 Designing a Marine Safety solution which fits your working environment reaps many benefits. This is because safety requirements for marine operations may vary considerably. The variations can come from tidal changes to the differences between vessels. Eliminating the one-size-fits-all approach can save lives and protect your passengers or cargo. A suitable marine safety solution should be designed to provide the necessary flexibility for your specific operations and work environment.

 

3. Pre Vessel inspection and checking

 

  • Hull inspection to understand the seaworthiness level of the vessel.
  • Periodical checking of main/auxiliary power inspection to confirm safe and operable machinery for vessel propulsion and emergency power.
  • Boiler inspection to ensure that it is structurally sound with operable safety devices such as the fire alarm system.
  • Electrical systems inspection to ensure satisfactory installation of wiring and equipment.
  • Lifesaving systems inspection to ensure satisfactory and adequate means to abandon ship.
  • Firefighting systems inspection to ensure fixed and portable devices are suitable for the intended space and type of fire.
  • Navigation inspection to ensure adequacy and operation of navigation equipment.
  • Pollution prevention inspection to ensure compliance with international regulations and domestic laws.


Inspections of vessel security systems includes the following: 


  • Verification of security related documents and certificates such as the ship security plan, International Ship Security Certificate and Declaration of Security.
  • Ensure appropriate training drills, and exercises are being conducted.
  • Ensure required on board security procedures are in place
