When is a holiday not a holiday-LOL!Just a quick hello from the Kedge Team as we launch fully into 2021!!!Over the 'break' our staff:Milked 525 cows in Ouse. Renovated a bathroom. Collected 33 (huge) recycled marine buoys. Saw family. Saw the Gordon Dam. Moved ships in and out of ports. Skippered and engineered a number of vessels in 4 Australian states. Ate too much trifle and Australian prawns. Went fishing. Lied about the fish we caught. Went camping. Volunteered at Salvo's. Flew to Bathurst Harbour. Had some fun. Were very concerned about family and friends that were not well...thought about others not so fortunate as us....Attended to electrical surveys, periodic surveys, pre-purchase, H&M and P&I surveys and insurance claims, and conducted some comprehensive risk evaluation and mitigation reports and travelled to customers in 5 states. Liaised with AMSA to keep our customers operating legally...All in all a decent holiday(!) was had by all..and we are back, fully recharged and ready to support our awesome current (and future) customers nationally and internationally.If you have a vessel related matter you think we might be able to assist with give us a call any time on 1 300 89 95 96 or drop us an email - service@kedge.com.au and we will look after you. ...

Are you ready for 1 July 2018???

If, like the majority of people we speak to you would answer this question ‘am I ready for what on 1 July 2018???’ the simple answer is that its the date that AMSA take over full responsibility for service delivery from the States and NT.

Its not entirely clear at this stage as to exactly what this will mean for fleets or individual vessels. Here at Kedge we are keeping our ears very close to the ground to give our customers the best chance of a simple and straightforward transition.

If there is anything that is concerning you or that we can assist with please by all means drop us a line at service@kedge.com.au

New and Updated AMSA Standards and Marine Orders Released

Some good work from the AMSA standards and legislation team has just been released.

The Fire Standard C4, a perennial nightmare to apply has been re-cast and looks pretty decent.

There is some good news on transitional standards application which could simplify bringing  vessels into new areas of operation without  having to completely re-design and rebuild them.

Here’s the link to the Standards- you will find the others in the new-look AMSA website under their applicable sections. https://www.amsa.gov.au/vessels-operators/regulations-and-standards-vessels/national-standard-commercial-vessels

Negotiating these legal and tech standards can be a bit confusing- if you get stuck call us on 1 300 89 95 96 and we will link you with one of our  friendly experienced surveyors who will be happy to help you.

  • The capacity to conduct HF/HCD analysis of other designs and work spaces- for example AUV launching and recovery modules, Offshore workspaces etc.
  • Perform link analysis/ergonomic analysis of design drawings and provide recommendation whether the drawings comply with available HF design guidelines and criteria.
