Case Studies

Assist investment decisions in “next generation” vessels

A dynamic container shipping line was seeking to invest in 14,000 and 18,000teu containerships. Being much larger than its current vessels and of new design, before lending, the banks require an independent assessment of their financial and competitive viability.

Technical Due Diligence

Technical due diligence gives an independent, third party assessment of operational assets (vessels) and infrastructure (shipyards, ports and terminal facilities).

Technical due diligence is typically undertaken as part of an overall due diligence process as a pre-requisite to a major transaction or project investment.


Activities undertaken include the physical inspection of terminal equipment, related facilities and services to confirm their overall status and value. Our services include:

 

Port terminals
