Our site team of experts on hull, painting, machinery, piping, electrical, automation, cargo containment, and administration, follows the construction schedule closely.  They oversee inspections, tests, Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) and sea trials at the shipyard or in other locations in accordance to approved Inspection Test Plan (ITP).

The site team has regular progress reviews with the shipyard to ensure that any slippage is followed up by a recovery plan. The detailed progress is closely monitored by the project management team and regular site visits are included.  

The final ship documents and certificates are carefully reviewed and delivered. Regular progress reports are provided to the owner.
