Project Cargo

Get Latest Price

MCE provides a specialist service to underwriters in terms of minimising risk during transportation of high value Project Cargoes. Working closely with underwriters, brokers and contractors, MCE can review a project, agree on the critical items and identify the areas of highest risk. These items of equipment, which may originate from manufacturers in different continents, can then be given special attention to minimise risk throughout transportation from the suppliers' premises to the construction site. Our international network can ensure economical and prompt expert service at major origin destinations in the world. Over many years the private financing of major projects such as the construction of power stations, refineries and other industrial facilities has led to a large increase in the demand for "Delay in Start-Up" (DSU) insurance cover of critical equipment.
Through synergies with our Marine Warranty Services colleagues, MCE is able to provide specialist services for Project Cargo Transportation and Approvals. MCE uses highly experienced & qualified master mariners assisted by the Engineers (Naval Architects / Structural) for transportation approvals after assessing the suitability by survey of the vessel / tug & the review of various transportation and sea fastening documentations, metocean data, etc. MCE has been involved in movements of critical equipment for large projects and has gained unrivalled experience in the transportation of such items by sea. MCE can also provide consultants to advise on all aspects of ocean tows and Project cargo transportation, including the feasibility and option of contracting a heavy lift vessel, and, to accordingly investigate loading and unloading locations anywhere in the world. Should a wet tow be selected for movement of Project Cargo, then MCE can manage all aspects of the operation on behalf of their clients. The tasks required are to ensure the suitability and the integrity of the unit, and its ability in terms of the towing connections and the bridle to withstand the towing forces during all weather conditions. In addition the towing vessel needs to be assessed for suitability and their ability to provide the service for the duration of the operation. There are other aspects of long distance tows of Project Cargo, such as crew changes and re-fuelling opportunities which have to be considered, and, unless properly managed all can involve risks for the tow.

Marine Warranty Services

Get Latest Price

The role of MCE as a Marine Warranty Surveyor is to reduce the probability of losses to an acceptably low level, by the application of appropriate standards, by checking designs and procedures to ensure that they comply with the standards, and by inspecting the readiness of equipment for an operation to begin, and monitoring the suitability of actual and forecast weather conditions.

In addition to offshore construction projects, the Marine Warranty Surveyor will also be involved in the towage, either by tug or on a heavy lift vessel of Mobile Offshore Drilling Units (MODU's) that are being transported from one location to another. The approval of the drilling site for both jack-up units and semi-submersible drilling units are normally subject to an investigation by the Marine Warranty Surveyor.

In the last few years a Marine Warranty Surveyor has also been requested to take a more active role in the approval of pipelines and the installation of sub-sea architecture.
