Ship Speed Trial Verification


Far East

Project Description:

Verification of Speed Trial Analysis for new build LNG vessels

Our Role:

Verify the contract speed of fleet of new build vessels based on actual trials and model tests.


On behalf of our client we critically evaluated the calculated contract speed of a fleet of vessels.

As some vessels did not meet their required contract speed, we advised our client on what the actual contract speed was, based on our own calculations.  This was discussed with the shipyard in detail, including a ‘like-for-like’ comparison of sea trials analyses and we then advised our client on what we considered to be a reasonable speed for the purposes of contractual discussions between our client and the shipyard.

We worked closely with our client and with the shipyards in an open manner to agree on a final contract speed to avoid lengthy and costly litigation.
