Idwal works with the world's leading dry-bulk charterers & commodities traders to provide detailed pre-charter condition and vetting inspections of predominantly dry bulk tonnage and tankers.
The single biggest expenditure for any owner, investor or financier after buying a vessel is the cost of dry-docking. Idwal provides a comprehensive dry dock management service which has been proven to save our clients time and money.
Idwal has a proven track record of managing complex newbuilding programmes and overseeing billions of dollars of vessel orders invested through Asian and particularly Chinese yards, with a dedicated office and team in Shanghai.
Flag State inspections ensure standards are maintained on board vessels flying their flag, and include verification of statutory documentation and a general examination of the vessel's structure, machinery and equipment.
High standards of navigation are fundamental for the safety of vessels, cargoes, crews and the environment. Navigational assessments are now widely used and can be useful in identifying improvements for navigational practices.
All our inspection reports feature the Idwal Grade®, an industry recognised measure of asset integrity. It is programmatically calculated from over 500 individual data points, captured during a standardised inspection process. Our data-driven methodology ensures that our reports are consistent, accurate and free from bias.
Simple to understand regardless of your technical experience, the Idwal Grade enables easy visualisation, benchmarking and comparisons of an asset.
