Kalimbassieris Maritime is actively involved with risk assessment and loss prevention, both on behalf of marine underwriters and P&I Clubs. We have been conducting P&I vessel condition surveys for over 20 years and have become acknowledged experts in the field, particularly in respect of passenger vessels. Condition surveys require an in depth knowledge of the technical and operational aspects of trade, international regulations and safety requirements, as well as the risks to which insurers are exposed.

We are also heavily involved in loss prevention in respect of cargo. Our standard cargo work includes pre-loading surveys, draft surveys, inspection of stowage arrangements (including for project/specialised cargo) and hatch cover inspection and sealing.

In many cases through our local knowledge we are able to identify loss trends and new opportunities for loss prevention for our clients. Some recent examples of such advice include a study on stowaways and human trafficking through Turkey, identifying trends in crew claims in Romania and Bulgaria and identifying a pattern of grain shortage claims between Black Sea ports.
