A draught survey is the before and after survey, which determines by measurement, the vessel’s displacement before and after loading or discharging. The difference between two displacements is the weight.
The purpose of a draught survey is to determine the amount of cargo loaded or discharged for the benefit of all interested parties. A well conducted draught survey of a large vessel should achieve accuracy to within 0,5 %.
The draught surveys will be carried out by Fjeld Consultant AS professional surveyors.
