Marine Fire Investigation
According to Insurance Information Institute, there were 41 large ships lost and 2,815 marine incidents in 2019. Many of those incidents were fire-related. Marine fires are quite complex because they usually involve several vessels and it is difficult to stabilise the scene and preserve evidence.
Marine Fire Origin and Cause
With so many variances in types of fuel systems, electrical systems, piping, and equipment on board, marine fires are often quite complex. They can require an expert or team of experts that are knowledgeable about all types of marine vehicles and structures to properly and accurately determine the origin and cause of fires or explosions onboard a vessel.
At Envista Forensics, our team has the unique experience to not only find the origin and cause of the fire but walk you through the investigation process and reporting our findings in a clear, concise manner.
