A subsidiary of Bureau Veritas, TMC Marine is a leading technical marine consultancy with offices in London, Singapore, Shanghai, Melbourne and Houston. Since 1979, TMC has provided high-quality support to clients, shipowners, insurers, charterers, law firms, cargo interests and other authorities.
TMC Marine’s comprehensive services include emergency response, salvage and wreck removal, engineering and marine accident investigation, distressed cargo management, expert witness legal work, technical support for insurance claims, as well as loss prevention and cargo work.
When marine assets are damaged, rapid intervention is necessary to avoid loss of the vessel, as well as damage to the environment or cargo. Accident investigation is necessary to determine the cause of an incident (collision, fire/explosion, grounding, etc.), and clients may require assistance initiating first-response services and monitoring the incident. As legal disputes can arise throughout a vessel’s lifecycle, from pre-delivery to post-incident, clients require sound, consistent technical advice from experienced consultants.
