Our surveyors are internationally certified by leading industry organisations such as the Nautical Institute, the International Marine Contractors Association or the 360 Quality Association. We report to accepted standards - so survey results and audits are comparable, always and everywhere.
However, we can also setup and deliver reports that meet your particular needs. Our specialist surveyors are assisted by a range of software innovations, one of which being BMT MATE©. MATE© translates inspection results into intuitive reports and benchmarks, helping clients to improve vessel performance and mitigate risk.
Please take a look at our surveys, audits and certifications below:
We establish the nature, cause and extent of hull or machinery damage, undertake assessment for repair, supervision and monitoring.
Our accredited vessel inspectors (AVIs) conduct eCMID and eMISW audits on all specialist vessel types, using the eCMID database for clear reporting to operator and charterer alike.
Our Marine Application for survey, Trend Evaluation & reporting (MATE™) provides real-time, actionable insights into the condition and performance of vessels and fleets.
Our certified auditors provide navigation assessment services to improve bridge team performance and reduce navigational risk.
We offer specialised services such as supervision of operations, review and preparation of terminal handbooks, condition surveys for tankers, compliance etc.
We have a long track record of vessel inspection, offering entry and condition, vetting, cargo, sale and purchase surveys for all types of ships, from seagoing vessels to inland barges.
Many of the world’s largest shipping lines trust us to protect their assets through specialist advice and audits that promote safety and operational efficiency.
We're fully authorised under the 360 Quality Association’s rules to audit specialised reefer ships and coldstore terminals.
Lead Naval Architect, Steven Lee, from BMT Specialised Ship Design explains the origins of the Pentamaran, and shares his technical insights to how this tested design offers unique capabilities for Autonomous operations.
A critical ingredient to innovation is collaboration, especially so when the application of new and emerging technologies is being investigated or during the search for marginal gains.
As we enter the third decade of the 21st Century, we are being assailed on all fronts by transformational changes in technology, business models, autonomous systems, new manufacturing technologies all resulting from the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
I began my career in naval architecture 23 years ago designing commercial vessels. In that environment design and engineering decisions on form, features and layout can invariably be made based on a balance of technical and commercial factors measured against construction cost, overall operability, revenue earning capability etc. In general, all these factors can be quantitative and finite.
Machinery typically have all kind of moving parts and particularly gears and bearings. All the parts are exposed to wear and tear; thus, they could fail if not maintained properly or replaced on time.
BMT's Greg Fisk recently spoke with James McMahon, CEO of The Climate Service (TCS), a U.S based climate analytics company, about the uptake of climate considerations by the financial sector.
