Every vessel inspected by Idwal is given a unique Idwal Grade which analyses over 500 different data points gathered during the inspection which are then passed through our advanced algorithms to generate the grade results. The algorithms feed the data into 21 sub-grades, culminating in a single final Grade, which quickly identifies and easily highlights areas that are exceeding expectation, or require improvement.
