In addition to all the activities of Marinco Survey, we regularly are involved in various other maritime projects. Thanks to the extensive experience of our surveyors and the various disciplines in which they have worked in the past, we are at home in almost every field in the maritime sector.
In case of disagreement between parties, Marinco Survey is appointed by the parties, the relevant lawyers, or the court where a case occurs to act as an expert witness or arbitrator on the basis of available information and to issue a (binding) advice.
In addition to our regular surveyors, Maup Hoppzak is involved in Marinco Survey as a freelance surveyor. Maup has extensive experience and regularly acts as an arbitrator (a.o. for UNUM, ex Tamara and NAI) and legal expert for courts and arbitrators.
