Good practices and safe execution requires verification and examination of processes by an independent entity for mitigation of undue risk other than what is normally expected. 

The ever-changing and increasing weight, shape, and size of cargoes being transported requires implementation of industry guidelines, standards, and practices such as the need to scrutinize the techniques for implementation since a boilerplate methodology for handling various types of cargoes is not conceivable.

As Marine Warranty Surveyors (MWS), we are the independent third-party that conducts technical reviews and approves the procedures from the planning stages through to the physical execution. 

For over 30 years, EMCI has been a leader as MWS for some of the world's largest and most complex construction projects. EMCI safeguards the interests of underwriters, their assured, the assured's contractors, or the interest of self-insured clients.

EMCI has focused and supported the handling of cargo for projects around the world for the production of energy from renewable sources. Our team has extensive experience reviewing the methodology for shipping wind energy equipment and overseeing the actual execution when being handled at various stages of transport until it arrives at the project site. 

Our team has extensive experience with the following components:
