New Build Vessel Operational Assurance

Independent Assurance

ADC offers independent assurance that new build vessels are delivered from the shipyard ready to operate. We specialise in complex vessels including wind turbine installation vessels and jack-ups [WTIVs]. Our functional verification of all equipment, systems and processes is typically above and beyond classification and marine warranty.

Our experience and impartiality helps ensure common problems encountered on new build projects are identified and managed at the outset. Subsequently lengthy and costly rectification of issues close to vessel delivery are avoided, whilst vessel non-productive time (NPT) on start-up is minimised.

New build vessel operational assurance

our Approach

Adopting best practice from high-performance industries placing technical excellence, diversity of ideas, leadership and teamwork at the forefront of our approach.

New build vessels deploy similar technology to assets used in aviation, nuclear and defence such as fighter jets, nuclear submarines and frigates.  Engineering standards in these industries are the highest in the world and operational assurance of these assets is non-negotiable.

ADC Energy Ltd. collaboration with rig crew

ADC has integrated engineering specialists from these industries into our team to raise performance standards offshore. We place a particular focus on addressing high levels of NPT and sub-optimal performance often associated with new build vessels.

Our technical excellence and drive to raise performance, coupled with selecting people who can build relationships and work collaboratively with the vessel owner project team, shipyard personnel and end-user is key to our success.
