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.
To meet the needs of tomorrow as well as today an increased importance should be placed on sustainability and climate resilience in submarine design.
Artificial intelligence has for decades been rumoured to revolutionise ship design and change the ways we work forever. However, apart from improving Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools, the creation of ship general arrangements is relatively the same as it was in the 1980s.
The requirement to reduce maritime emissions in the next decade has brought this reality ever closer; it is not something to drop into the pending tray. If we do not make plans now, we stand little chance of even scratching the surface of the targets.
One of the most significant challenges of warship procurement is the need to keep pace with technological developments and changing strategic contexts.
Designing a vessel for a pioneering offshore wind project in Japan required BMT to work to new rules.
At a time when progress in technologies provides only marginal gain in terms of reducing operating cost and environmental footprint, should the traditional ferry paradigm be challenged once more?
