  • Here below factors we normally take into account before deciding if performing the survey while the vessel is transiting the canal:
  • For surveys that need equipment test, we can use some anchorage time, before or after canal transit.
  • If the vessel is planned to have a stop-over in the lake, it is a good opportunity to check the bridge and decks.
  • Canal transit time is perfect to inspect Engine room areas and interview Engineers.
  • Bunker time before or after Canal is a good time to interview Bridge Crew.
  • Tanks inspections is possible at the anchorages.
  • IHM Surveys is possible during Panama Canal Transit without the need for Anchorage time.
  • 3D Scanning is only possible during Anchorage time and/or port call, as the vibration while the vessel is moving can affect the quality of the 3D Scans.
  • ISM-MLC-ISPS Audits, possible during Canal, and timing the critical equipment test at the anchorages.
