Marine & engineering specialist advisors underscore Asia capabilities and commitment to the region.


London Offshore Consultants (LOC), the leading marine and engineering advisory group, have doubled the size of their Hong Kong office with the appointment of Ed Wollaston and Steve Salt, effective immediately.


Mr Wollaston, a naval architect and chartered engineer, will be responsible for claims investigation specialising in classification and ship structural issues. Ed has been with LOC since 2007 in the group’s London office and has worked on pivotal claims for flag states, P&I Clubs, insurers, and law firms, with emphasis on marine warranty cases. Prior to joining LOC, he worked for a major ship classification society in Europe and China for five years.
 

Mr Salt, a marine engineer with more than 20 years experience at sea and over a decade ashore, joined LOC at the beginning of the year. Steve spent much of his time at sea as chief engineer on gas and chemical tanker vessels before moving to newbuilding supervisory, technical ship management and fleet management. He now specialises as an investigator in marine engineering, technical and operational tanker practice, and newbuild and shipyard cases.

   
“Ed and Steve bring exceptional levels of skill and experience to augment our Hong Kong operations,” said Paul Walton, director of Hong Kong operations. ”Over the last 12 months, we have seen huge growth in the demand for our services from Hong Kong. By joining us, they effectively double our capability.”


Jon Walker, Head of LOC Asia, added: “We have been in Asia for more than 25 years and our commitment to the region is ongoing. Just this month, in addition to doubling our presence in Hong Kong, we have announced a new operations office in Vietnam. Our expansion plans will continue to meet the needs of clients both based in and with key business into Asia.”
