A Vessel Inspection Report is then prepared after the visit so that a progressive record of the vessel can be kept and the condition reports forwarded to Owners. Further, all vessels are regularly audited every six (6) months by the DPA/Auditor for ISM compliance as required by ISM code. Then, a vessel Safety Audit Reports is prepared after the audit.
Dry dock indents / work order lists are being prepared three (3) months in advance. A follow-up visit to the vessel if necessary is undertaken to draw up and prepare dry docking specification one (1) month in advance. Quotes are sought from several repair yards and the best suitable choice is made depending on location, cost and reputation.
Efficient and careful planning goes side by side with cost control. With detail and close discussions with the Owners, operating budget are drawn and reviewed yearly. Tight budgetary control without sacrificing overall quality and maintenance are strictly adhered to. Careful planning, not only by offshore personnel but most importantly by ship's staff, ensures the best possible maintenance standards, without sacrificing the optimization of the commercial requirements of the vessel.

Prior to employment, deck and engine officers undergo upgrading for five (5) days and ISM seminars for another five (5) days. Crew ratings also undergo ISM seminars for five (5) days to impart to them the importance of safety management. Continuous training and seminars regularly keep them up to date with standards that the company demands.
