Chris Gascoigne, a Chartered Engineer with a First Class Certificate of Competency, joined Brookes Bell in January 2008.
In late 2010, Chris left Brookes Bell to work in Asia where his role continued to focus on marine casualty investigation. Chris returned to Brookes Bell in 2013 and uses the experience he gained in Asia to build on his previous consultancy work within the Group. As a surveyor, Chris has worked on various ship types and casualties, including salvage, fires, explosions, hull and machinery related matters, crane damages and bunker quality disputes. Whilst he also sailed on ro-ro's, tugs and dredgers, Chris’ sea service was principally on board passenger vessels fitted with diesel, diesel-electric, steam and steam-electric propulsion systems. Prior to entering marine consultancy, Chris also gained valuable experience in the areas of power and control system commissioning, ship environmental systems design and the development and trials of environmentally adapted lubricants and hydraulic fluids.
