Condition Assessment

 

Securing an impartial overview of an asset’s status

A condition assessment is a must-have for any owner or operator looking to obtain an overview of a marine and offshore asset’s status. This is particularly relevant when needing to meet charterers’ condition obligations for trading vessels of a certain age or when considering a conversion. Owners require an independent, trusted party to carry out the condition assessment on their behalf.

Recognised as a CAP provider by Oil Majors, BV Solutions M&O has comprehensive expertise in Condition Assessment Programs (CAP) for trading vessels, and uses the same inspection methodology for Condition Assessment Prior to Conversion (CAPC). Our proven methodology helps owners and operators obtain a clear and transparent overview of the vessel and/or unit. Then, an effective maintenance and/or conversion strategy can be put in place, supporting their overall decision-making.
