In the early 1980s, members of the Partnership in the UK were increasingly being asked to investigate the causes of incidents in South East Asia. In response to this, and in order to better serve our growing clientele in this part of the world, we opened the Singapore office in 1986. In 2001 our capabilities in Singapore were enhanced by the opening of our materials failure group, which specialises in incidents involving mechanical breakdown, fracture, collapse and corrosion. In 2002 we expanded the range of our operations further, to include the investigation of electrical failures such as those in distribution and power transformers, induction motors and general electrical systems.
With the large amount of shipping that serves the region, we have a particularly strong experience in marine fires, engineering incidents and cargo issues. We also have the particular specialist knowledge to advise on the handling of chemical contamination, spills and other hazardous goods incidents, and to investigate incidents of microbiological contamination, spoilage and self-heating of agricultural products. We also provide advice on the management of “live” fires on board ships.
The Singapore office can offer the immediate response that is required in our region and with the backup of the International Burgoyne Group, we have the expertise and resources to assemble a multi-disciplinary team of investigators when necessary.
When instructing Burgoynes, you are obtaining a wealth of quality experience and expertise that cannot be matched in the region.
