MIS are certified by ABS, DNVGL, BV, LR and NK to perform thickness measurement (UTM) on ships.
UTM surveys can range from a few hundred readings on a small vessel up to 50,000 for a large vessel with CAP requirements. All our inspectors have years of experience conducting UTM surveys and are all qualified to minimum PCN level 2.
With UTM surveys becoming such a major part of the special / intermediate / CAP survey we are able to assist the owner or manager to reduce the pressure on them.
MIS can assist through all the stages, from preparation of the planning document, organisation of the ballast / survey program, completion of UTM requirements to Class rules and accompanying the Class surveyor if required. We produce a steel renewal report to cover any areas of substantial or renewable wastage and can provide supervision of repairs at the shipyard if required.
