LIA services have been developed to meet the needs of today’s ship operators. These are aimed at assisting the ship operator in maintaining a compliant ship and therefore a ship less exposed to external disruptions to its service.
LIA understands that our ability to compete with so many other flags means LIA must be ahead of the game when it comes to the level of service on offer with low costs and no hidden extras. Over the last decade LIA have introduced a series of in-house initiatives specifically aimed at giving our clients the best possible service..
This level of controlled delivery of services requires an administrative system capable of monitoring those services provided.
Due to the specialised nature of Ship Registration services, the development of an administrative system is best carried out by persons who have first-hand knowledge concerning the daily work and responsibilities . To ensure that such a system is fit for purpose and remains so during its lifetime it is recommended that it has been approved as compliant with an international standard for quality systems.
Ship Inspections and Assessments :
LIA services help improve assessment of ship or vessel conditions and reporting during inspections. The condition of the ship is fully recorded and deficiencies are identified as appropriate under these programmes. The shipowner is able to record the continued condition of his ships’ structures through the documentation and software within the Hull Integrity product.
Identifying deficiencies during Survey :
Our condition assessment survey procedure includes inspections which can identify areas of deficiency. Early identification of these areas provides an opportunity for targeted maintenance, which in turn can reduce the risk of unplanned downtime and increase the time available for charter.
Combining the LIA survey with the vessel’s structural survey provides minimal disruption to the operational schedule.The hull structure assessment may include a fatigue assessment that can identify specific areas or locations to be inspected.
The machinery and cargo inspections are combined in a single operational voyage that culminates in a cargo discharge. For bulk carriers, cargo gear and deck fittings are tested and examined as necessary.
Separate reports are prepared covering the hull, fatigue, and machinery and cargo systems.
LIA Inspection and Survey will give you a full details of :
· Risks of pollution,
· Structural failure and
· Machinery downtime.
Inspection reports and associated certificates are issued to the shipowner upon completion of each stage. This provides the potential for an uninterrupted trading pattern and maximises the revenue from the ship.
Inspection Reports & Documents :
LIA Reports and certificate and report are valuable documents. A shipowner can show these to third parties as evidence of the ship’s condition. The Inspection Check List demonstrates to charterers that the critical quality areas of the vessel have been assessed and certified.
