BMT Surveys (BMT), a subsidiary of BMT Group Ltd, an international design, engineering and risk management consultancy, has announced the opening of a new office in Geneva, to support its rapid expansion across Europe.

Providing further support to clients in Switzerland, the office will focus on P&I, Hull and Machinery, Cargo Insurance and maritime law through BMT’s global survey network, based in more than 250 ports worldwide.

Initially, the Geneva office’s primary function will be to manage immediate survey actions and offer advice to clients using the surveyors’ network, with a plan to develop into a fully staffed consultancy office in the near future. Commodity traders and charterers can benefit from BMT’s consultancy services on cargo-related and technical matters in the event of marine emergencies and (liability) claims. BMT can also provide condition assessments of vessel fleets in their portfolio and risk assessment / management.

As an independent marine surveying company, BMT provides a wide portfolio of services in cargo, vessel condition, tankers and terminals, nautical and technical operations, and has offices across Europe and Indonesia.

Phil Thompson, Transport Sector Director for BMT, commented, “Having a local presence in Geneva allows us to liaise with clients quickly and efficiently. BMT continues to be one of very few marine surveying companies that provides broad support across the H&M, P&I and cargo markets. We are fully committed to further investing in the future of marine surveying and expansion of our services.”

The opening of the Geneva office follows recent expansion in London alongside sister companies BMT WBM and BMT Hi-Q Sigma, further strengthening the company’s ambition for sustained growth and increased offering across Europe, and the world.
