Offshore Vessel Inspection Document (OVID)

CARES provides assurance checks as part of a vessels chartering process in the provision of offshore vessel inspection and resulting documentation.

With qualified and experienced inspectors available in West Africa and worldwide, we are able to provide a positive and quick service.

The Oil Companies International Marine Forum, otherwise known as OCIMF members, have agreed a common inspection document and format which will eliminate the need for inspectors to conduct inspections using a core document and client-specific supplements.

This Offshore Vessel Inspection Document (OVID) aims to simplify the inspection process for both inspectors and ships staff and also provide assurance personnel in the oil companies with increased confidence in the inspection report content.

The Offshore Vessel Inspection Document details assets’ principal dimensions and equipment, and it provides vessel operators the ability to ‘showcase’ its capabilities, providing a tool to project teams to pre-screen vessels that are capable of undertaking the required activities.

Having this document controlled by the vessel/unit operator allows for rapid amendment to reflect upgrading activities, and hence allowing project teams to quickly evaluate the vessel’s new capabilities.

Proactive owners of offshore vessels will quickly see the benefit of keeping an active inspection on the database as it will streamline the pre-chartering process and, for competent vessel operators reinforce their positive image with the clients.

CARES has competent and qualified OVID inspectors available and ready to serve your needs worldwide.
