Answering The SOS Call
When we receive your "SOS call,", an experienced project manager will set off immediately in order to be on board your ship as soon as possible. They analyze and prioritize the damage and, following consultation, will immediately implement the necessary emergency measures to minimize or avoid interruptions to operation and subsequent damage.
At the same time, they will generally take on coordination of and communication with all those involved in the damage – from the ship’s crew to the insurance company.
We offer a broad range of services including:
Contamination Level Assessment
Corrosion Control - Even technical equipment, spare parts and tools that appear to have survived a fire or water damage on board without problems may have been affected by corrosive or toxic substances, and the speed of corrosion is increased by salty sea air. By undertaking preservative measures, the corrosion process can be temporarily halted.
