Marine Survey

Founded in 2014, IHMCo (Independent Hull and Machinery Consultancy) is owned and managed by IEUAN DOLBY. Ian is an ex Chief Engineer and Superintendent with the last 10 years dedicated to marine consultancy, initially in Asia and now based from the UK.

Aside from regular condition and pre-purchase inspections Ian is currently working on a variety of cases for owners, lawyers, adjusters and claim handlers. For example, IHMCo has recently provided expert opinion on cranes, hull damage, groundings, main engine bearing failures, fuel contamination, fire damage, flooding, cargo damage (bulk and general) and thruster failures. 

IHMCo also have a close network of qualified and known surveyors around the world who we can recommend or arrange to conduct a survey.
