Sharing chemistry




We are a company with 60 years combined supercargo experience.

Originating as Supercargo specialists, we have grown our offering at the request of our clients who recognise our strong commitment to superior delivery and integrity of service provision.

​We are going global!

what WE DO

Optimizing resources for an efficient cleaning process, with quick and accurate test results meeting Loading Port inspection specifications.


In-Service Failure Investigation is requested when significant breakdowns or coating damage is observed during service. The possible origin and mode of breakdown formation is studied and related to existing records of coating usage, coating maintenance records, chemical resistance list of the coatings, to produce a well-founded evidence for the investigation.


Fujairah/Dubai, Singapore, Rotterdam, Houston & beyond, we have an expanding network to meet delivery needs of IMO approved cleaning products and test equipment, plus the knowledge to help you decide on the most effective chemical and quantity required for any cleaning job.

Based in Fujairah – UAE, we can quickly meet the need for Spectrometer and Teledyne analyzer calibration on an ‘ad hoc’ or scheduled control basis. We currently maintain over 30 Spectrometer and Teledyne trace oxygen analyzers for our clients, ensuring operational performance of each unit before delivery on board at any port. On voyage completion the unit can be returned to our office for checking and ready for later dispatch to another ship, thus optimizing usage for any unit.

Lighthouse Maritime Services are the only maritime affiliated company with the manpower and knowledge to assist your crew in getting meaningful results from your spectrometer. Whether for wall wash analysis or washing water analysis, we can tailor training sessions to meet crew conference requirements or carry out ‘on board’ training during port calls or Supercargo attendance.
