Market & Clients
Asset Owners, Managers, Operators
We assist Owners, Managers and Operators to increase profitability by increasing efficiency, reliability and availability of the assets either by optimising the asset at design stage or by improving key systems and practices for existing assets. In case of accidents we investigate the root and proximate causes, nature and extent of damages. We help assessing third parties’ liabilities (e.g. designer, makers, contractors) and help to recover losses. In addition we provide assistance in solving the root causes definitely, eliminating the re-occurrence of accidents and damages.
H&M, P&I, Loss of Hire, Charters’ Liability
We support insurers in investigating proximate causes, nature and extent of damages and in handling liabilities. We are conversant with main policy terms and adjusting principles and our diverse expertise allows us to provide multi-disciplinary consultancy, services and reports timely, efficiently and cost effectively.
We provide expert advice and forensic engineering services for litigation, arbitration, court proceedings. We have experience in US courts, where the ability of rendering very complex matters in layman terms is paramount.
We provide assessment on the value of assets and on the progress of projects. For existing assets, we perform pre-purchase survey, review of records and we can advise our principals not only on the status of the assets but also on the expected technical and economic performance. For new buildings we perform assessment of the builder and of the design, with the aim of ensuring the quality of the manufacturing and the technical and economic potential of the asset, once built.
