Rolls-Royce


Rolls-Royce engaged with PML Applications to undertake a challenging marine engineering project. The project investigated a novel anti-fouling technology for marine propellers. The team at PML Applications were quick to appreciate the potential for this technology. They helped us evaluate and demonstrate the technology working up from test pieces up to full size components. PML Applications undertook unique testing with bespoke test rigs to evaluate propeller fouling in a real-world marine environment. This developed the technology  from TRL 3 to TRL 6 and we are now seeking to commercialise our novel antifouling technology.
 
PML Applications were responsive and reliable, delivering an excellent quality of technical work. They were able to address the unique aspects of this project and overcame many technical challenges, ensuring that they always delivered on time and within budget

Gailey Law


We contacted PML Applications for expert assistance in a large international dispute. The team’s expert evidence was accurate and concise. Very importantly, they made it easy to understand for a lay-person. PML Applications’ support was a strong factor in achieving an outstanding success in the case. I would have no hesitation in turning to PML Applications again for expert assistance.

Coldharbour Marine


Coldharbour Marine has worked with PML Applications since 2009. The unique approach to Ballast Water Treatment adopted by Coldharbour Marine meant that independent verification of the efficacy of each of the treatment stages that make up the system was required.

PML Applications, with its unique blend of marine scientists, project management skills and deep understanding of the requirements of the IMO BWT Convention represented the perfect partner to carry out this work. We will continue to work with PML in the future as new projects and challenges arise.

Carnival UK


PML Applications was contracted by Carnival UK and Alfa Laval to conduct an independent shipboard test of the Alfa Laval Pureballast 2.0 fitted to a Carnival UK vessel.

Both parties wanted to be sure that the retro-fitted system was able to meet the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) D-2 discharge standard for ballast water under normal operating conditions. We were asked to attend the ship in Southampton during one of her short routine port visits and sample the ballast water during discharge. Ballast water was sampled over a full discharge of two ballast tanks and analysed for the three IMO D-2 discharge standard categories. All were well within the IMO D-2 regulation standards.

"Cunard Line engaged PML Applications to conduct acceptance testing of an off-the-shelf Ballast Water Treatment System onboard MV Queen Elizabeth in 2013. The testing covered the full suite of the IMO D2 standard, and was conducted onboard by PML Applications staff. The professional way in which the sampling was conducted, and the detailed reports provided has given us reassurance that the system works as intended, and confidence that it will continue to meet the demanding requirements of cruise itineraries. PML Applications continues to provide Cunard Line with performance monitoring of our BWTS in service."

Alstom


As the ReDAPT Programme Manager in Alstom, I have worked with PML Applications for over 2 years during which time we have jointly coordinated several deployments of sample environmental paint panels onto the seabed and also attached to the Alstom 1MW tidal turbine.  I would highly recommend the team for their flexibility, commitment to getting the job done and their ability to deliver on time and to cost, having demonstrated several times on ReDAPT their creative problem solving abilities.
