With over one hundred years of heritage and an ethos of quality, innovation, and integrity, Idwal is known for accurate, consistent and objective inspection reports as well as a continuous commitment to raising the standards of ship inspections worldwide.
Our unique digital inspection framework and online platform allows our clients to view and understand the condition and risk of their maritime investments better than ever before, with greater visualisation and clarity of critical data, allowing customers to make smarter decisions.
Supported by our offices in the UK, China, and Greece and over 360 surveyors worldwide; our inspection reports and the Idwal Grade has become the 'gold standard' financial institutions, ship owners, and other stakeholders believe in and trust.
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.
Today, an Idwal Condition or Pre-Purchase Inspection is available in hundreds of ports worldwide and offers you a competitively priced, comprehensive yet easy to understand report, delivered promptly. Our reports give you access to clear and concise data supported by our unique digital inspection framework which is delivered globally by one of the world’s largest networks of qualified marine surveyors.
From global inspections to portfolio monitoring, or simply providing high quality technical advice and support, we work closely with a blue-chip global client base including prominent banks, alternative lending platforms, funds, ship owners, brokers, insurers and charterers.
