Damage Surveys

For the past 80 years Van Woerkom, Nobels & Ten Veen have been carrying out independent damage and nautical surveys  for hull & machinery underwriters and the owners of vessels and marine contractors' equipment. The surveys are carried out worldwide, round the clock, always keeping the interests of our principals at the forefront.

In recent years we have been involved in assessing some of the largest and most dramatic casualties in the maritime sector: from third party collisions to groundings, and from engine room and accommodation fires to machinery breakdowns.

In addition to the deployment of WNV's own in-house surveyors, we can rely on a strategically located worldwide network of consultants and experts to carry out damage surveys on our behalf and according to our own standards. This allows us to act at short notice to protect our principals' interests and to assist where and when necessary

Our subsidiary - Expertiseburo Jos Ceelen - carries out damage surveys of land-based equipment such as large hydraulic/ lattice boom cranes, bulldozers, wheel loaders and associated equipment.

  • Land based equipment

WNV attends casualties to all kind of sea-going and inland vessels, such as hopper/cutter dredgers, jack-up barges and cable lay vessels, as well as wet/dry contractors' equipment, with a variety of hull and machinery damages.

Our experience and knowledge of technical, insurance and legal matters allow us to respond decisively and recommend the necessary steps to be taken in any given situation.
