Solis Marine was established in the UK and Singapore in 2012 to provide independent expert advice on maritime and shipping incidents. A third office was opened in Hong Kong in 2013 to expand on operations in the region and to extend the range of services and expertise provided by the organisation. In 2017 Solis Marine expanded into China with an office based in Shanghai and this was followed by further offices in Qingdao and Xiamen in 2018 with a team of six staff between the offices providing general survey services as well as incident response in these areas. Solis Marine has recently opened its first office in continental Europe in Rotterdam, introducing a global Fire and Chemicals emergency response operation and risk assessment to our suite of services. Senior consultants within the company have all given expert evidence in court or arbitration and Solis Marine also has three Special Casualty Representatives on the panel at Lloyd’s.
In 2018 Solis Marine Engineering Ltd was established in the UK as a dedicated engineering firm to provide a range of design engineering services to the offshore oil and gas, renewables and shipping sectors. In addition to working within the UK based offshore industries, Solis Marine Engineering will also be supporting the wider operations of the Solis Marine Group offices in Singapore and Shanghai as we look to continue our expansion worldwide.
