Over the years, Orion has built a team of personnel with expertise in mixed disciplines, using a mix of staff with long years of practical ship-board and ship-yard experience.
Orion carries out marine inspections and surveys, spanning across different vessel types and cargoes ranging from:
- Liquid and Gas cargoes
Today our expertise encompasses the entire range of survey and inspection activities and includes:
- Cargo handling
- Insurance surveys for loss assessment
- Vessel pre-purchase inspections
- STS operations
- Claims handling
- Loading Master Services for liquid cargoes
- Expeditor services for dry cargoes
We have established ourselves as experts for difficult consignments by appointing Port Captains
The appointment of a Port Captain offers a considerable advantage to a ship owner through the drawing up of systematic stowage plans and the knowledge of local conditions which help cut down on a vessel’s turnover time.
The significant difference is that we act not as mere surveyors, but as expeditors, looking after a client’s interests as we would our own.
Orion has the capability to draw on a sizeable talent pool comprising Ship Captains, Marine Engineers, Naval Architects, Port and Shipyard planners, Research analysts, Surveyors, Economists and Support staff. Through this wealth of experience and technical skill-sets, we are able to deliver innovative solutions that exceed our client’s objectives and aspirations.
