HULL AND MACHINERY SURVEY
SIM Hull and Machinery survey inspections are carried out in order to identify the damage or loss of the incident on Hull and Machineries and to also witness and supervision of repair operations, cost of the same, causes of the incident and estimates of the loss or damage. They inspect all types of vessels and machinery damaged including repairs and dry docking, and the attendance includes collision, machinery breakdown, fire, stranding, water ingress, etc. providing itemized assessment and reviews of costs in all this type of incidents.
SIM surveyors conduct condition surveys for the purpose of determining the condition of a vessel or equipment at the time of the survey.
The purpose of SIM Draft Surveys is to determine the weight of cargo on board the vessel using the density of the water in which the vessel is floating; from this total they subtract the weight of the vessel's structure and other weights on board which are not cargo. The difference obtained is the cargo weight. This survey includes reading the vessel’s drafts, measuring the ballast water, fuel and diesel oil and other liquids on board, and calculating the final quantity by using the vessel’s approved dead-weight scales and tank tables, and other documents.
