Assessment procedures

Whether ships come into port during their journey overseas or are brought in for regular maintenance and services prior to a long departure, there’s a particular ship husbandry service that is worth hearing more about. It’s a testing procedure that tests vessels for cleanliness to ensure they are suitable to be out at sea and in a marine environment in general. This can encompass everything from the condition of the ship to finding leaks that can contaminate the water.

Ship maintenance

Ship maintenance and repairs can range from small tasks to huge undertakings, depending on the kind of attention your ship needs or what you want done. The list of vessel components that require regular cleaning is extensive, but here are the most commonly requested maintenance needs that a ship husbandry staff will work to complete:

  • Cleaning container ships, military cargo ships, dry-bulk cargo ships, liquid petroleum tankers, product tankers and nitrogen gas tankers is a key component of maintenance.
  • Vessel repair services are also available, whether repair needs are known or discovered during professional maintenance while in port.
  • Underwater ship husbandry maintenance services include hull cleaning to remove organism growth and propeller polishing, and repairs like welding needs, repair of fiberglass shaft coating and painting after repairs are made.

Various preparations and notifications

Not only can a ship husbandry service coordinate cargo operations, they will also assist with document preparation—like pre-arrival attendance, berth applications and document submission. And if you need clearance for your vessel’s arrival and departure, they can help secure that with the appropriate authorities so you don’t run into shipping delays.
