Strength and Stability Investigations
Our team of naval architects can provide expert advice on a variety of strength and stability issues for claims and disputes. These issues can range from total loss of a vessel through to cargo shifting and lashing disputes.
Our naval architects all have experience assisting with strength and stability assessments for salvage and wreck removal operations in addition to providing expert opinions for court, arbitration and mediation proceedings.
We are also able to conduct inclining tests on the full range of vessel sizes from small fishing and passenger vessels through to large cargo vessels and offshore jack-up platforms. With our sister company, Solis Marine Engineering, we provide stability and strength analysis for innovative offshore design solutions including wave energy devices and bespoke vessel designs.
