Our maritime surveying business was established in 1928 with the formation of a technical survey company. Over the years, we have dealt with hundreds of thousands of enquiries and, today, we manage approximately 3,000 marine survey assignments per year. Over 1,000 of these are technical inspections for our hull and machinery customers.
We do this from five local survey offices in the Netherlands, Belgium and Singapore, with 45 dedicated marine surveyors and a further 300+ affiliate surveyors situated across the world. So, if you are looking for skilled marine surveyors who provide a proactive approach to servicing customers with competitive pricing, please get in touch.

We offer a broad range of surveys, audits and certifications to promote safety and operational efficiency.
