Providing vessel hardening vulnerability assessments before entering high-risk waters. These assessments form a crucial part of the vessels readiness to work offshore.
Vessel hardening is an integral part of vessel safety. In waters where an armed solution isn’t possible or isn’t assessed as necessary, vessel hardening becomes the first line of defence in the event of an incident. The vessel needs to be capable to lockdown and provide an appropriate response to an aggressor whilst outside support is mobilised.
A well-hardened vessel and trained crew will deter and delay any assailant. Castor Vali has years of experience in hardening all types and classes of vessel. With our ability to liaise with vessels worldwide, we conduct a detailed study of any previous fabrications, the vessel specification and general arrangement before any physical visit. We follow best management practices as a guideline and utilise our significant industry experience to take a pragmatic approach to hardening, with consideration to the vessel arrangement, working nature, health and safety and the operating environment. In collaboration with client management, master and crew; we will deliver a detailed vessel vulnerability hardening report listing all recommendations and fabrication examples.
