Solis Marine was established in the UK and Singapore in 2012 to provide independent expert advice on maritime and shipping incidents, salvage and wreck removal. The company expanded to Hong Kong in 2013 and continues to maintain strong connections following many years’ of experience working there.

In 2017 Solis Marine expanded in China, opening in Shanghai, followed by Qingdao and Xiamen in 2018. The Shanghai office provides expert mariner services and is supported by the teams in Qingdao and Xiamen for general survey services and incident response.

The Group includes Solis Marine Engineering, established in 2018 and headquartered in Falmouth, UK and Singapore. Supported by a team of eight naval architects and structural engineers, Solis Marine Engineering is the centre of our marine engineering, research and global design excellence.

In 2022, Solis Marine extended its UK presence to provide our expertise and experience of offshore wind and renewable energy, alternative fuels and propulsion/vessel design, to clients in the Humber and North East of England. Our Hull office also serves as a base for our incident investigation and reconstruction, salvage and wreck removal and marine engineering services.

Senior consultants within the company have given expert evidence in court and/or arbitration and Solis Marine has three Special Casualty Representatives (SCRs) on the panel at Lloyd’s who have been heavily involved in a number of high profile and politically sensitive wreck removal & salvage operations.

Our team of Naval Architects all have practical salvage & wreck removal experience working on behalf of both vessel owners / insurers as well as directly for salvors. Expert reports have been prepared for court & arbitration hearings on collisions, groundings, tugs & manoeuvring, unsafe ports and berths, cargo issues, passage planning, fire & oil spill response, personal injury, vessel operations, prudent seamanship & damage to submarine pipelines.
