Second Innings For SA

Tuesday, January 29, 2002
The Salvage Association is staging a comeback. Having been acquired by British Maritime Technologies in March last year, the SA has now been revamped and relaunched. In an attempt to transform itself from a not-for-profit organisation into one that can survive in a commercial world, the new SA has announced an expansion of its services into all maritime sectors. In addition to traditional hull and machinery surveys, the SA is now offering a whole host of services, including litigation support and expert witness work. The relaunch was announced at a well-attended reception at the Baltic Exchange in London last week. By far the most energetic response to the SA plans came from the legal contingent following the announcement of a new legal fees collection service for lawyers. Deputy chairman John Noble said he wanted to build on the SA presence in the major maritime law and P&I centres around the world. He has asked SA surveyors to make contact with their local maritime lawyers and introduce them to the breadth of expertise within the SA. Source: Maritime Advocate
