Condition Assessment


NTX Marine Services department can assist vessel owners in evaluation under CAP (CONDITION ASSESSMENT PROGRAM).

CAP is the recognized method for a ship owner to demonstrate the quality and suitability of a vessel for charter. The program provides a charterer with a technical evaluation that determines whether or not an older vessel has been maintained to a standard that should minimize the possibility of a casualty, oil spill, mechanical failure or General Average claim.

The CAP includes a detailed survey of the structure's gaugings and a strength and fatigue engineering analysis as well as extensive testing of the vessel's machinery, equipment and cargo systems. Following the CAP, a rating is assigned to the vessel.
