The PSB specialists

The PSB team consists of specialised senior surveyors who have extensive knowledge in the area of setting weights of vessels, stockpile inspections and temperature controls.

With a broad spectrum of experience in the area of setting weight of inland vessels, draft surveys of sea vessels (ranging from Coasters, Handy size ships, Panamax ships and Cape size ships), stockpile inspections of coal, temperature controls of stockpiles and of coal/biomass loads.

Full inspections of sea vessels and inland vessels that are to be loaded with coal-related products as well as biomass products.

Our surveyors are specialised in a specific kind of coal product, namely for inspections relating to energy generation, coal for Cokes production (Coking coal), Cokes for the steel industry, Petroleum Cokes, Anthracite and Biomass. This is needed because every related product has special characteristics and possible problems.

Nearly all of the senior employees have been taught under the responsibility of CEO Peter Bagchus for the inspections in general and, currently also the younger employees can benefit from a training programme within the organisation.

The on-site specialists are supported by an enthusiastic team of employees at the office of PSB Inspection. Our fast success is partly to due to the special effort made by this team of enthusiastic employees who are committed to this firm like family members.
