Every vessel we deliver undergoes an intense period of commissioning and testing, whether it is a new construction or a revision.

Merré provides all the specialists you need : Commissioning Manager, Captain, Mechanic, Motorist, Class surveyor.
With the right experts, we prepare your ship for its operations.

Commissioning is carried out by the Commissioning Manager (assisted by the Project Manager if necessary). All on-board equipment is rigorously tested, resulting in improved product quality and increased vessel operating time.

We perform the following tests during dockside and offshore testing to measure the navigability and overall performance of a vessel :

  • Waterproofing of windows
  • Waterproofing of doors
  • Safety equipments
  • Speed test
  • Steering
  • Crash stop
  • Anchoring
  • Propulsion
  • Piping and systems
  • FiFi system(if needed)
  • Bollard pull (if needed)

Once completed, the vessel is certified and accepted by the Classification Society and the Shipowner.


With our tailor-made delivery solutions, we guarantee that you receive your ship safely, on time and ready to operate.

We have the knowledge and experience required to ship your vessel to his operating destination. This is how we provide service throughout the process.
