Forensic Marine Engineering Services
Critical machinery failures like a loss of propulsion or steering can result in major losses due to vessel damage, cargo losses, and liability for damages to other vessels or property.
Envista's marine engineers have in-depth knowledge and experience with design, development, production, and maintenance for the machinery and equipment utilized on blue and brown water vessels. They are able to deploy quickly and effectively to provide direction for the failure investigation and effectively manage claim costs.
As within all of our divisions at Envista, our marine engineers utilize the latest technology, such as 3D scanning programs and drones, to investigate and document following a marine loss. Ocean marine scans using 3D technology allow for a virtual walk-through of vessels for easier access to the scene, statement clarification, and discussion of aspects of a loss that might arise during civil litigation. This technology is especially valuable when a loss occurs in a complex marine space, like an engine room or pilothouse. Capturing the whole of a loss via 3D scanning allows our engineers to focus on the details which might otherwise be missed.
The claim types related to marine engineering include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Equipment loss mitigation
- Vessel machinery
- Vital system automation
