MARINE WARRANTY SURVEY

We provide skilled and experienced Marine Warranty Surveyors (MWS) who are tasked to ensure that risks associated with insured operations such as wet and dry towing, heavy lift and load out operations are at an acceptable level for the operation to take place.

This normally requires the input of our experienced Master Mariners, supported by Mechanical and Structural Engineers and Naval Architects.

We have carried out tow warranty surveys on behalf of insurers on a number of unique wave and tidal devices.

third party verification

“360 TPV” is a holistic approach to readiness assurance covering engineering design, manufacture, mooring capacity, marine operations, locational suitability, operability, regulatory and license compliance, as well as cost effectiveness and investability, and can also be combined with insurance warranty requirements to be even more effective.  By taking such a broad-based analysis the system overcomes the shortcomings that may arise through more narrowly specified assurance processes.

Third Party Verification for Marine Renewables

In the marine renewable energy sector Third Party Verification (TPV) is loosely defined as a report that certifies the integrity of the structural design and foundation for the particular conditions expected at the location of installation. 

Orcades Marine has developed and put into action an enhanced Third-Party Verification service “360 TPV”, specifically aimed at the marine and offshore renewables market.  The “360 TPV” approach brings a progressive, added value dimension to Third Party Verification, learning lessons from the last 20 years of TPV practise.

Marine Project Management and Installation

The wide-ranging technical and engineering design in wave and tidal energy technologies requires individual marine solutions for the mobilisation, demobilisation and deployment of these devices.

With extensive experience working in these harsh environments Orcades Marine provide expert guidance and works closely with developers and their power partners to ensure smooth and efficient operations in this innovative sector.

We have carried out project management and turnkey installation projects for wave and tidal device developers and provide expert advice at locations around the world on sea and on land  supporting the marine contractor or developer. We provide remote advice and assistance preparing and advising on procedures, method statements and robust risk management.

Mooring Design and Research and Development

Mooring Design and Research and Development

Our consultant mariners, naval architects and engineers are keenly innovative and cross generational experience. 

They are able to apply decades of experience and transferable knowledge from the offshore and shipping industry with the most recent technology changes and digital tooling to provide solutions to challenging problems.

 We have worked on several collaborative research projects and continue to seek new ways to address the need to decarbonise our environment and improve safety and efficiency.
