Marine & Cargo Survey by Master Mariner Surveyor with 20+ years Experience

On/Off-Hire  SURVEY

On-Hire (Off-Hire) Condition and Bunker Surveys are carried out on board the vessel to state the ship condition and bunker quantity prior to or after her chartering. We carry out a complete inspection of the condition of all cargo holds at first. Decks, cargo handling areas, and cranes/gear are inspected to identify if there are any damages caused during the charter period.  In order to determine the fuel on board at the time of on or off-hire, the sounding is taken of all Bunker Fuel tanks including Heavy Fuel & Marine Diesel Oil. READ MORE

To bring more accurate outcome, always we request our Principals to update with required input, prior we move forward with the off-hire bunker survey program at Chattogram or Mongla anchorage-

Maritime Ports in Bangladesh | Chittagong, Mongla, Payra

The Chittagong port is the biggest seaport of Bangladesh. It is located by the estuary of the Karnaphuli River in Patenga, Chittagong. Recently, Chittagong city has been renamed as Chattagram. Earlier, 8.5m was the permissible draft to enter the inner harbor. Now Port allow berthing of ships with a draught of up to 9.5 meters during high tide.

Mongla Sea Port is the second largest and most Eco-friendly port of Bangladesh. It is located on the southwestern part of the country, at the confluence of Pussur River and Mongla Nulla. Approximately 71 nautical miles (131 Km.) upstream of the Bay of Bengal. For berthing at inner harbor, this port allows vessels with a draught of up to 7-8 meters.

Payra Port, the small seaport in southern Bangladesh, sits on the west bank of Rabnabad channel at the confluence of Galachipa-Tetulia river. Payra Port started operation in August’2016 with ship-to-ship cargo transfer, though on a limited scale. It is expected that the first phase of dredging for this port will be completed by 2020. Then vessels with a draught of up to 11 meters will be able to berth at the seaport during high tide time. Bangladesh is now the concern for a deep-sea port and had granted a contract to Japan to build a deep sea port at Matarbari, which is just 25 kilometers away from Chittagong.
