Appointment strengthens Asia hub

BMT has appointed Hittesh Gupta as Head of Casualty Investigation, Asia as the firm continues to strengthen its marine consulting services hub position in Asia.

With over 23-years of experience in the shipping industry, Hittesh has a deep understanding of marine surveying having served on product and crude oil tankers and offshore oil & gas production units. He has worked extensively for underwriters and leading P&I Clubs undertaking casualty investigations across the full spectrum of vessels and provided assessments of their Cargo / Seaworthiness – Oil, Chemical, Gas tankers, Containers, General cargo, AHTV, FPSO, Jack-up rigs and Supply vessels.

Hittesh is also a Subject Matter Expert in container casualties taking an active role in emergency response, investigation, distressed cargo management and assisting in General Average. He has extensively handled container casualties resulting from Stow Collapses, Containership fires, Collisions and Grounding.

“Singapore forms the maritime heart in Asia and sits at the centre of a web of trade routes.  We intend to provide our clients with the same high-quality and timely specialist advice synonymous with BMT services worldwide,” said Hittesh Gupta.

“Singapore is the perfect base to be a part of this future. For mature companies like BMT, the advantage we gain from being able to utilise our marine surveying network in Singapore and in the Asia Pacific market, the need to be close to the large, vibrant, domestic and international shipping community that resides in Singapore, and the credibility and kudos that it provides, is integral to our global offering.” said Managing Director of BMT’s Surveys business Dennis de Bruin.

For BMT’s de Bruin, all these components allow the business to provide “the best service possible” for its customers and industrial partners. He continued: “By continuing to grow our presence in Singapore, we can ensure that we do this for our South-east Asia membership. In addition, we want to continue to attract quality operators and new venture opportunities to our hub, which we believe will be enhanced by our continued presence in Singapore and will permit BMT to scale-up its business.”
