Our surveyors are internationally certified by industry-leading organisations such as the Nautical Institute, the International Marine Contractors Association or the 360 Quality Association. We report to accepted standards - so results of surveys 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 are fully authorised under the 360 Quality Assocation’s rules to perform audits on specialised reefer ships and coldstore terminals.
Not long ago, an expedition cruise ship grounded off a remote island; no one was hurt, there was no environmental impact and damage was minimal but the potential learning outcomes are huge. BMT’s Nick Dowden investigated and reports.
The potential opportunities and rewards are vast. Let’s change where we need to, let’s collaborate more. We will not just survive, but thrive!
Working at sea can be tough. Many of us will have had the opportunity to experience the cold, the wet, the heat, the constant motions, the cramped spaces and the isolation from home life.
