Marine engineering involves the application of all types of engineering sciences to the design, use and maintenance of watercraft and oceanographic technologies.
Marine engineers can be found working in a variety of environments including engine departments, dredges, ports, offshore supply areas, oil tankers, passenger ships and oil rigs. As such, they usually require in depth knowledge of most fields of engineering, especially electrical and mechanical.
The primary specialties of marine engineers are naval architecture, oceanographic engineering and offshore engineering.

Expertise in Action
The main duties conducted by marine engineers include the monitoring and maintenance of relevant engines and electronics, including refrigeration, air conditioning, cargo-handling equipment and data-reading equipment. Other tasks include pollution control, anti-fouling, cavitation and the ensuring of stability.
Experts in marine engineering are often required to assess the causes of accidents such as collisions, oil spills or on-board injuries. They thus require immense knowledge of each device on board a particular vessel, their interactions and the relevant safety procedures surrounding their operation.
For some fields of expertise we have some sample sections of de-identified reports. Please contact our office if you are interested in a sample.
The overall cost of expert opinion depends on the services required. Some of the key factors that affect the cost of advice include:
- The need for a view or inspection of a location
- The quantity of documentary material to be reviewed
- Whether there are reports of other experts to be reviewed and commented on in detail
- Whether there is a need for conferences with the expert either in person or by telephone/Skype
