Brookes Bell’s Marine Engineers investigate a wide range of incidents including hull and machinery surveys, specialist crane investigations, forensic engineering investigations, technical management and routinely provide expert witness evidence in court and arbitration proceedings.
Drawing on decades of practical experience they provide prompt and accurate preliminary advice followed by detailed analytical comment to a forensic level, as required by our clients.
Our Marine Engineers are highly qualified and have gained practical experience serving in senior ranks at sea, most to the rank of Chief Engineer. Since coming ashore, they continue to investigate a wide range of machinery failures including propulsion engines, both slow and medium speed diesel, steam turbines, diesel electric, auxiliary machinery including generators, electrical failures and control and instrumentation. Our Marine Engineers also become involved with assessment of the nature and extent of damage to project cargoes where machinery and structures are involved.
The complementary skill sets within Brookes Bell, including engineering, metallurgy and high-end computational analyses, can be combined as required, without duplication of work, to best suit the technicalities of the problem faced.
