Ieuan began his career as an engineer on Ferries, LPG, LNG, Bulk and General Cargo vessels, a near twenty-year career which culminated as Chief Engineer on DP Anchor Handling, Seismic Survey and Platform Supply Vessels operating worldwide. During this time, he worked with and overhauled a variety of engine types, including Caterpillar, Yanmar, Blackstones, Sulzer, MAN, Mistubishi and Daihatsu engines, to name but a few, and including time spent as docking engineer based in Singapore.
Moving ashore, and after one-year as Technical Advisor on Diesel Electric, Ice-breaking PSV’s in Sakhalin, Russia he became a Technical Superintendent for geared MPV vessels with a UK based company. During his four years in this active role he developed and then installed a new computerised planned maintenance and store system for a fleet of forty vessels and then provided training in its use. Routine work included the management of a fleet of vessels covering all aspects from new-build, handover to daily operations, vessel purchase (class and flag change) and major conversions, the last of which involved the removal in entirety of the ship’s main generators and the subsequent installation of larger sets.
In 2012 Ieuan headed to Singapore as a Marine Consultant for an international consultancy firm. He spent four years there before heading to Hong Kong to run the local office as Principal Surveyor. In these roles, and as a respected and well known marine surveyor, Ieuan attended hundreds of vessels on behalf of P&I clubs, Owners and Hull and Machinery Insurers, both to investigate the cause, nature and extent of damage after an incident, to follow through with repairs and in many instances to assist in the mitigation of issues, e.g. pollution and sinking, resulting from collisions, grounding, flooding and fires on seismic survey and container vessels, cape size bulk carriers, tankers, and car carriers.
Now with McAusland & Turner, Ieuan brings with him an enviable career, including acting successfully as expert witness, a key component in court cases, arbitrations and mediations in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan, and which is backed up by his ability to advise on claims, recovery and marine situations in a clear and concise manner.
