Our Surveyors & Experts

This section gives an overview of our surveyors, consultants and experts. Please select from disciplines or locations to filter your results.

H&M / technical surveys

We cover a wide range of disciplines, from naval architecture to marine engineering, to survey and advise on issues from fuel disputes to cargo damage, from litigation to claims, from vessels to rolling stock. With our team of qualified engineers and naval architects, we cover the world’s major ports.

Marine Casualty Investigation

We investigate and advise on many aspects of marine casualties, from collisions to personal injury and pollution.

Expert Witness & Litigation

Our surveyors are trained to provide oral and written evidence in court and arbitration proceedings at all stages of the claims, dispute and litigation process.

Cargo consultancy

We attend over 4,000 cargo-related surveys each year, giving us industry-best insights into the causes and consequences of both, damage to cargo as well as damage caused by cargo.

Fire investigation

Our fire investigators are IAAI certified. IAAI stands for the U.S. International Association of Fire Investigators and provides the world’s highest standard in fire investigation techniques.

Wreck removal and salvage consultancy

Salvage and wreck removal are highly specialised tasks. Our dedicated team includes salvage masters from the Dutch salvage industry with Lloyds SCR (Special Casualty Representative) accreditation.

Audits and inspections

We conduct many types of audit, inspection and certification to promote safety and operational efficiency.

Yacht surveys

As yachts become ever larger and more complex, offering credible advice to the international yacht and insurance market demands more than a worldwide network: it demands strong technical insight into the nature and performance of these vessels.

Training & Courses

We offer Port & Ship Familiarisation, Tanker, Terminal and Liquid Cargo as well as LNG and LPG courses, on-site in the Harbour of Rotterdam. More information needed or you want to sign up? Please click here:

Global Surveyor Network

Our in-house BMT network enables us to offer engineering expertise from 23 offices spread over 4 continents. In addition, we work with 500+ surveyors all over the world providing our services 24/7.


The results of our surveys, investigations and audits are understandably confidential. What we can and do share, however, are the results of our own independent research.
