Marine Warranty Surveys

ABL Group is the world leader in Marine Warranty Surveys (MWS). We have acted on behalf of underwriters, their assured, the assured’s contractors, or for self-insured clients for over 40 years to de-risk marine operations and protect the interests of the insured.

The company has acted as Marine Warranty Surveyor on many of the world’s largest and most complex marine construction projects, as well as for major onshore construction projects requiring marine transportation of large modularised and preassembled units and other project components.

Our Services

A marine warranty surveyor provides independent third-party technical review and approval of high-value and high-risk marine construction and transportation project operations, from the planning stages through to the physical execution.

ABL Group’s MWS services are supported by the company’s extensive global network of international offices. This network, which is manned by professionally qualified and experienced technical specialists covering a broad range of marine, engineering and offshore disciplines, gives us the flexibility to support and service large infrastructure development projects (or mega projects) and also the smaller, more country or regionally focused projects where we can supply local personnel and country or region knowledge.

We use a proprietary web-based project tracking and management system to manage multi-site projects, which our clients can access to track our work’s progress and deliverables in real-time.

Our decades of experience, global network, high-calibre multi-disciplined teams, project management systems, and our long-term marine legacy to always seek the truth in everything that we do, make ABL Group the obvious choice for the provision of your MWS needs.
