Class & Structural Surveys


Vertech USA are at the forefront of driving quality, efficiency and innovation in the class inspection and marine services market. Vertech USA works closely and collaboratively with clients to save on costs, drive safety excellence and meet conditions of class with unparalleled efficiency.

Classification societies such as ABS, LR & DNV-GL have - for many years - relied on our marine services specialists to assist their attending surveyors during the class inspection of ships and offshore structures.

Our experience working with classification societies and operators on different assets allows us to plan and execute surveys that are completed safely, to a high standard, and with minimal impact to schedules and budgets or disturbance to on-board operations.

Vertech USA have been audited and certified by ABS, LR & DNV-GL as external specialists. We regularly assist in resolving class issues by utilising our inspection, maintenance and repair capabilities, covering:

  • Alternative access methods (ROV & UAV) for inspection
  • Periodic surveys (annual, intermediate, special, continuous and IOWS / UWILDS)
  • Hull condition surveys (crop & renew, pre docking)
  • Pitting & coatings surveys
  • Steel renewals
  • Piping renewals
