When an incident occurs, being able to quickly understand the situation is critical – the natural questions of what has happened and what will happen need to be answered quickly and effectively. Rapid access to information on the impact of the incident on people, the environment and the assets involved will give the response team critical insight and enable effective responses to be implemented that can help to minimise the environmental, financial and reputational impact of the incident.

Our CASPAR (CASualty Preliminary Assessment Report) system provides rapid information on the incident to enhance the situational awareness for all parties involved.

The CASPAR service offers a quick assessment of marine incidents using all of the most relevant intelligence available in relation to an incident such as AIS tracks, environmental or weather conditions, port details, tide, marine charts, satellite imagery, photos, vessel details and other inputs suited for each situation.  CASPAR provides those managing and attending an incident with valuable information and insight into what has occurred and how best to respond. It offers improved situational awareness and efficient data collation, omitting the superfluous information. The reports are available rapidly following notification of an incident (often within 4 hours) and is provided in an easy-to-use, universal format.

Since its launch in early 2019, CASPAR  has been used regularly on a range of maritime incidents and has proven its ability to enhance the information available to incident responders for incidents such as:

  • FFO incidents such as STS crane impacts, dock allisions, subsea cable damages.
  • Business Interruption claims to assess usage of a facility before and after an incident.
  • Salvage and wreck removal projects.
  • Container losses, enabling regular and up-to-date reporting of containers and material coming ashore

Time is a critical factor in most marine incidents and getting the early decisions right can make the difference between a professional response that protects your interests and an expensive set of problems.
