Ultrasonic Thickness
Measurements Department

GLAFCOS MARINE has established a separate department to contact UTM's in order to assist vessels in service to comply with enhanced survey programm require-ments.
No matter the type of survey (special, intermediate or annual) GLAFCOS MARINE assigns a multi-disciplined person or team to attend it. GLAFCOS MARINE's technicians (mostly Naval Architects and Marine engineers) are capable and fully qualified of performing any type of UTM hull survey, and as a bureau we have the technical background, the experience and the proper software and hardware to contact subject surveys.
GLAFCOS MARINE has the potential to prepare draft reports on-board in the same way as final ones. This is due to the fact that GLAFCOS MARINE's technicians are fully equipped with portable PCs, printers and the appropriate software in order to prepare subject manuals fast, accurate and in a high standard form.
Quotations can be obtained from GLAFCOS MARINE on request and can have the type of charge you require (e.g. lumpsum, per day, per point).
