BMT's cloud-based tool known as 'MATE', which captures and tracks any and all aspects of a vesselís condition, following a pre-defined and often tailor made inspection format, has now been used for more than 2,000 surveys.

The first MATE inspection was performed in 2016 and the tool has been successfully used for monitoring vessel condition ever since. According to BMT, MATE can be easily customised to meet a client’s specific needs. When a survey is carried out within BMT’s Global Surveyor Network, including over 300 surveyors in over 500 locations, data is compiled in MATE, showing transparency and highlighting risk areas.

In 2020, with the circumstances and limitations surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, MATE has proven itself to be an important tool. A MATE inspection can be performed worldwide and can provide vital information needed for safe shipping.
