Remote Vessel Assessment Versus Technical Inspections
Currently global society, including the maritime industry, is facing unparalleled challenges due to thespread of the corona virus. As the wellbeing and health of our customers, business partners, employees and their families is our priority, we have taken action and implemented measures to reduce social contact accordingly and continue to monitor the situation closely and follow the guidelines and recommendations from the authorities.

As travel constraints are now widely enforced and access to ports/terminals/vessels is highly restricted or even not possible at all, physical inspections of ships in service are very challenging.
We strive to deliver the service for inspection and technical assessments required by our clients also under the current circumstances, however in the current situation, there are cases where physical attendance for inspection on board is not possible. A solution could be Remote Vessel Assessment, which is a service WESELMANN provides.
WESELMANN can provide a standard solution for the process and remote assessment, however the scope of the evaluation can also be discussed and defined in accordance with the needs of the client. A checklist is sent to the vessel and the crew is instructed to provide information and take photographs of all major components and areas of the ship. This information thus gathered is then analysed by a team of Weselmann experts along with existing documentation to be provided by the vessel’s managers.
