Raising The Standards in Luxury Yacht Surveying
Paseo Maritimo Palma de Mallorca
Surveys of Luxury Yachts Worldwide
NDE of Marine Structures and Onboard Systems
The objective of NDE (Non- Destructive Examinations)
Is to detect discontinuities, flaws and other defects in a structure or component, not normally detectable by naked-eye, in such a manner that the test does not harm the material in any way.
We can safely affirm to be the one and only company worldwide able to offer a complete range of NDE techniques specific to the Yachting Industry, all ‘under one roof’. Our portfolio of solutions grants us a unique status that allows us to offer the most suitable NDE technique for the problem at hand rather than bending a technique to suit a problem. Moreover, our full range of NDE techniques allows us to confirm flaws by cross-referencing findings.
