We have in-house salvage and marine incident experts from the Dutch Salvage industry, allowing us to assist the international shipping industry with emergency response advice and action for an extensive range of serious incidents, 24/7 globally.
We can rely on an extensive track record of operations to assist ship owners and insurers and collect evidence for future loss assessment and litigation purposes.
During our 100 years of experience, we have seen casualties such as groundings, flooding or even capsizes, collisions, significant cargo shifts, or collapses of a container stow. At other times, the cargo itself is the cause of the casualty. For instance, problems with spontaneous combustion of cargo, liquefaction of mineral ores or incidents related to incorrect cargo weights in containers.
There has also been a stream of casualties where fires have started in container loads of hazardous cargoes, some producing significant damage to ship and cargo or, even worse, causing injury or death to the crew.
We provide expert advice to ship owners, operators and underwriters in all such cases.
We use different, innovative research methods such as 3D visualisation and photography or CT scans to make the invisible visible...without destructive examination.
