Dry dock project management

tpo group
Our main focus in dry dock project management is to take action on the basis of our know-how and thorough analysis. Our project management is divided into three steps:

Analyze & measure - Plan - Execute

In all three steps, from pre-planning through to execution, we are highly focused on cost management and the need to avoid unnecessary expense. We will provide you with extensive reports on coating condition and general progress that will help you to optimise the project costs.

Condition surveys

tpo group
To avoid unforeseen costs, it is essential to have precise knowledge of the actual conditions of a vessel or offshore installation – for example in connection with second-hand purchases or pre-dry-docking plans. TPO Group has extensive experience in conducting thorough condition surveys of vessels and offshore installations in service, which will give you a sound basis for making the right business decisions and formulating action plans.
We support you by:

- Undertaking thorough inspections of all areas on board

- Providing detailed reports with extensive photographic records

- Securing the necessary documentation for the owner, shipyard and manufacturer, thereby enabling sound decision-making and work planning

- Delivering cost overviews of the extent of necessary repairs

Guarantee surveys and claims

Settling complaints and claims on coating system failures can be a tricky business. If you are the claimant, TPO Group can provide you with all the services you need to make the claims process faster, more efficient – and more likely to succeed.

We support you by:

- Inspecting all areas on board.

- Providing a detailed report with extensive photographic records and a cost overview of repairs, so that you will have the right documentation to make a claim against the shipyard or coating manufacturer.

- Providing realistic cost estimates for repair work.

- Contributing specialised know-how during negotiations with claims assessors, insurance companies, shipyards and/or coating manufacturers.


tpo group
Using TPO Group means you will get it right from the start. We customize the initial paint specifications to the actual newbuilding project and the intended use of the vessel/offshore installation - which is essential for the subsequent maintenance processes.

We undertake shipyard follow-ups during the process to ensure that the specifications are adhered to, thereby preventing problems arising with the coating later on. What’s more, we also offer extensive guarantee surveys within the guarantee period.

Training courses

tpo group
TPO Group offers effective and individually-customised training courses by knowledgeable experts. The courses cover everything from proper surface preparation, paint application, paint types and compatibility issues to the practical dos and don’ts of all maintenance scenarios. The courses can be held at your own premises or at any other venue of your choice, including webinars.

The object is to train your technical organization and crew to successfully handle the daily maintenance processes.

Second-hand vessels

A heavily corroded tank could turn your new vessel into a huge unforeseen expenditure. We can help you to be sure you aren’t buying “a pig in a poke”.
Through inspection, measurement and analysis, we undertake a thorough evaluation of the condition of a second-hand vessel. Subsequently, we can support you with relevant information and a realistic budget for any necessary coating restoration work.
