DESIGN AND THIRD PARTY ASSURANCE
FOR THOSE CLIENTS WHO MAY HAVE ALREADY PLACED ALL PRIMARY CONTRACTS OR HAVE ALL OF THE OPERATIONAL SUPPORT, EQUIPMENT AND CHARTERING IN PLACE – WE ARE ON HAND TO ASSIST WITH TECHNICAL SUPPORT AND ON SITE SUPERVISION
This form of contract can be broadly split into two main categories, namely third party technical authority services and independent technical support.
Technical authority services
These are normally those required by underwriters who carry responsibility for insuring a client’s cargo, but sometimes the client themselves look for oversight of work they have contracted as part of internal due diligence and project support. Regardless of which it is, we will ensure that the operation is executed in a safe and controlled manner. We ensure that sea fastenings and stability of the vessel is acceptable and all marine operations are well thought out and suitably risk assessed and planned. Similarly, we will ensure that any trailer arrangements, crane lifts and other land based operations are carefully managed and confirmed to be technically sound. When operating services under these conditions, a clear line must be drawn between delivering services and reviewing services to ensure that clear liability and sub contractor controls are in place. We do however differentiate ourselves from
many other warranty and third party review authorities by using our in house technical experts for oversight that also deliver projects day to day for us, thereby ensuring a knowledgeable and practical approach to design reviews with constructive guidance and feedback that aims to reduce the cost to you, as well as risk, wherever possible.
Independent technical support
This covers a wide range of heavy lift design and support services, including ad-hoc support for projects where gaps in the supply chain or project technical expertise becomes apparent.
