Tenth Anniversary Edition of ALONGSIDE
Welcome to our October 2021 edition of ALONGSIDE, Solis Marine Consultant’s regular Newsletter with views, news and updates from around the Solis Group.
Throughout 2022 we will be celebrating the 10th Anniversary of the formation of the Solis Marine Group, and we begin this Newsletter with some of the highlights from the last 10 years, from the very first instructions up until our latest assignments.
Next, we focus on our continuing expansion in the Far East and the opening of our new Solis Marine Engineering office in Singapore, bringing our renewables and clean shipping engineering capabilities to a wider market.
This is followed by the announcement that Marine Experts Argentina have become the latest recruits to our network of Alliance partners, bringing Solis local capability within South America.
Reconstructing incidents using AIS and VDR data has become an established part of the process of investigating casualties, and Senior Solis Marine Naval Architect Duncan Campbell describes our own in-house developed system Rapid Replay.
We then introduce Chris Gascoigne, our new Head of Marine Engineering Services. Chris, who is already well known to many of our clients, is leading the global roll out of our marine engineering consultancy services. And in Singapore, experienced naval architect Jie Zhang has joined the Solis Marine Engineering team.
Marine Warranty Surveys are one of the many loss-prevention focussed technical services we offer at Solis, and within this Newsletter we include a case study of the survey of the transportation of two wind farm crew transfer vessels.
We then provide an update on the 2022 Northwest Passage Expedition, before we introduce seaV, an app that has been recently released and which aims to provide a deeper understanding of the experiences of today’s seafarers.
We hope you enjoy this edition of ALONGSIDE, and we look forward to bringing you news of the events and celebrations we have planned for next year as we enter our second decade.
