The company was founded by Sigvart G. J. Simonsen in 1945. It’s principal activity in those days was the inspection of vessels and power generating plants as representatives of the Norwegian Norske Veritas. During its early days, the firm’s activities were confined to the the field of Marine liability claims and collision but with the passage of time our interests have broadened to encompass the wider business community in order to satisfy particular requirements. As the years have gone by, Simonsen y Cia. extended their interests by including P&I, H&M Clubs and the representation of vessel’s Owners and Operators.
