Online inspection report depository launched

Nick Owens, Idwal Marine Nick Owens, Idwal Marine

Idwal Marine, a provider of ship inspection services, has launched a free Cloud-based online platform to provide quotations and deliver reporting for vessel condition, pre-purchase and pre-charter inspection services.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The online platform provides access to a global network of ISO-certified ship inspectors along with vessel condition reports to allow users to assess the condition of shipping assets. 

“For our customers, who stake their business interests on the quality and accuracy of a ship inspection survey, it is of paramount importance that we can provide high quality, expertly informed assessments on the condition of their assets,” said Nick Owens, director of Idwal Marine.

“The need for thorough investigation is more important than ever, as we are increasingly witnessing the effects of maintenance decisions where quality has been sacrificed in favour of lower cost for several years now. This puts vessels and those that invest in such vessels at increased risk.”

Users can track the progress of each inspection performed on a vessel, with photographs and other supporting documents, and download full condition reports through the online interface. The platform also provides complex technical analysis for Idwal customers in reports for benchmarking against a new ‘at-a-glance’ ship grading system.

“Inspections are about examining the minutia for clues; understanding causality and effect of complex technical issues and making critical judgements about the practical implications on assets based on the evidence at hand,” added Mr Owens.

“We know what is important to both technical and non-technical stakeholders alike and through this online platform we are providing easy to interpret reports, alongside detailed technical evidence and critical counsel to help customers mitigate risk and further understand the assets.”

Idwal Marine is headquartered in Cardiff in the UK, with a presence in Shanghai, China, and is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Graig Group of companies.{/mprestriction}
