CPB Marine Services has been in operation for ten years and is able to offer a complete package to Port Developers and Civil Engineers who are engaged in the building and restructuring of port services as well as expanding existing facilities.
By working within a computerised model of a port design on a chart database with current and meteorological data overlaid, we can provide a comprehensive study using a wide experience of port and ship design that provides our clients with commercial feasibility as well as risk information that enables them to progress sound commercial planning.
I work closely with local pilots, hydrographers and our clients to ensure that there is up-to-date local input. Vessels are modelled and are piloted by skilled mariners within the feasible metrological conditions using available or proposed tug facilities. By doing this a comprehensive feasibility and risk analysis can be developed that can provide a forecast for the trading conditions of the facilities that are to be used. We specialise in all tanker consultations including LNG tankers and FPSO's as well as container services.

CPB Marine provides expert marine and pilotage advice to solicitors and their clients after a marine incident takes place. This also includes compiling reports and providing expert witness testimony in the High Court or Marine Arbitrations that complies with CPR Part 35, PD35 and the Code of Practice for Experts.
