This is achieved through careful design, backed up by verification of drawings and calculations, and empirical tests carried out during commissioning or after major modification works.

A Adamson & Company have considerable experience in conducting inclining and lightship tests, and preparation of stability booklets for submission to the relevant authorities for approval.

We also undertake design work related to modification and re-construction of hull and superstructure elements on all vessel types, from fishing boats to VLCC and FPSO.
