Experience is our way of setting the bar higher
The American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) has certified Seaward Marine Services, LLC, a Titan company, as recognized service supplier in the field of Hull Gauging.
Seaward Marine Services, LLC was audited by the local ABS senior surveyor to ensure all measures of job performance were performed satisfactorily. The ABS regulations regarding company approval did not differentiate between underwater hull gauging and topside internal dry gauging. Also, there were no preexisting standards for hull gauging by a ROV (remote operated vehicle). This presented a challenge for ABS to certify Seaward. In the end it was necessary for Seaward to be able to perform hull gauging dry internally, as well as underwater with divers and underwater with a ROV. All three processes were able to meet the requirements by ABS and Seaward was certified as the very first company to be certified to perform hull gauging underwater by a diver and with ROV. Seaward would like to thank Moran Towing for use of one of their tugboats as the test and demonstration vessel.
