Technical Due Diligence

ARK Marine has successfully completed Technical Due Diligence for a ship owning company ahead of its acquisition by a financial organisation in 2020.

This major project was completed over two months by a team of 5 including a Project Manager, Two Project Engineers and an Inspector. The work involved vessel attendance, conducting remote technical office audits, a full scope investigation of the fleet condition OPEX and CAPEX as well as safety and environmental compliance with IMO 2020. The condition inspections carried out included a thorough review of the vessels’ previous maintenance and dry dock activity.

Thanks to ARK Marine’s analysis of the current and future OPEX and CAPEX, the client was able to reap multiple benefits and accurately budget for a secure investment ahead of their acquisition.

One of the benefits of using ARK Marine is the level of expertise and consultancy that the organisation can bring to a project. The Project Manager also worked very closely with the client to deliver a bespoke service which the client fully appreciated as this helped them to take decisions more effectively.

ARK Marine offers a range of inspection services aimed at managing risk for ship owners and operators, and for financial institutions.
