MISTRAS provides inspection and maintenance solutions for maritime ports, shipyards, docks, and vessels to ensure these crucial transportation hubs and assets remain fully operational and safe.

Our maritime teams have the traditional Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) inspection and advanced access capabilities to service the needs of your maritime ports, docks, and shipyards to check for corrosion, cracking, erosion, and other potential issues. With rope access technicians, aerial and subsea drones, and trained divers, no element of a maritime port or shipyard is out of reach for inspection, maintenance, and repair.

Maritime ports and similar docking locations must meet high-quality standards to properly handle the transportation and carrier vessels that pass through, while also dealing with harsh environmental conditions that can lead to corrosion, erosion, leaks, cracking, and other damages. Outdated maritime ports and shipyard facilities can create both increased cost and potential risks, along with higher rates of accidents and injury for facility personnel.

MISTRAS’ teams of experts are well-equipped to assess, inspect, and improve the processes in place at many maritime locations.
