emergency at sea, or as technical as performing dock and sea trials, we deliver the professional support necessary. With
a staff of licensed U.S. Merchant Marine Engineering & Deck Officers and crew, The Lightship Group can provide
engineering support to ensure timely and efficient vessel activation, deactivations, dock, and sea trials.
