Company Digest September

Sep 1, 2021

Nordic Maritime Solutions is continuing in its fight to make shipping boring. Through inspections and surveys, we work with companies from all over the world to help them keep their projects boring so they can arrive on time and without incident.

As shipping projects have picked up over this year after their pandemic lull, we have been busier than ever helping to be our clients eyes ears and voice on site anywhere in the world. And we can not wait for more.

We have world class inspectors and surveyors ready to be on any project, anywhere in the world within 48 hours of inquiry.

 

The benefits of long-term deployment

Shipping and logistics is a complicated and collaborative job that can span across multiple countries, multiple modes of transport, and take months to complete. For those working on the projects, they often are only seeing a small part of the whole.

Because of this, it is in the best interest of everyone involved to have someone who can follow the project through each stage. Our surveyors are trained captains, naval architects, and engineers who understand the shipping process at each stage.

Instead of sending multiple employees to oversee the project, companies can hire a surveyor to deploy through the entirety of the project. Not only does this solve the problem of having a surveyor at each stage, it also ensures efficient communication and peace of mind.

As one of our clients remarked regarding the long-term surveyor deployment, “The benefit of the service provided by far exceeds the cost of the service.”

Long-term survey deployment:

  • Provides a single point of contact for updates on the project
  • Covers the need for a surveyor at each stage of the project
  • Allows a company to have a trusted overseer without sending an internal employee
  • Ensures that projects are done safely and in compliance at every stage.
  • Can be particularly helpful when working in different operational areas

 

Surveyor Highlight: Fred Fey

Fred Fey is one of our Germany based surveyors and had his start in 1964 in Travemünde on the sailing vessel “Pamir.”

He is very interested in new technologies in shipping and loves studying history. When he is not traveling the world as a surveyor, you can find him with a metal detector looking for treasures to share with the museums in Lippe and Münster.

 

An inspector that does more than inspect

To become an inspector with Nordic Maritime Solutions, you have to have years of experience as a naval architect, engineer, or captain, as well as current required certifications like IMCA AVI. This means that when one of our inspectors shows up, they are bringing with them a high level of expertise that goes well beyond what is required for an inspection.

Many of the incredible companies we work with use unique vessels made for difficult transport jobs. Though the standard inspections still apply, these vessels require an inspector who is flexible, knowledgeable, and able to adapt. A recent client working in the offshore wind sector needed just that.

Your eyes, ears, and voice on site

We want our clients to succeed far beyond the small role we play in their projects. If you need an inspector that does more than inspect, we would love to talk with you.
