Since 2016, ADEC Kedge has been a leading provider of compliance, survey, and consultancy services to the global marine sector. We are committed to delivering the highest levels of performance expected by our clients and our employees while leading the industry towards an environmentally sustainable future.

Established in 2016, ADEC Kedge is now a leading provider of marine survey, naval architecture, compliance, and consultancy services to the global marine sector. The scope of our expertise goes beyond that of which most marine services providers can offer with hands-on experience servicing all sectors of the maritime industry including work boat, passenger, fishing, charter, and offshore vessels. Providing more than 85% of the domestic commercial vessel survey services in our home state of Tasmania, our presence extends to New Zealand, the Middle East, and other regions worldwide.

Our dedicated team of engineers, marine surveyors, naval architects, and consulting experts have successfully undertaken assignments worldwide, addressing environmental and compliance requirements that vary from simplistic to more complex. At ADEC Kedge our goals are simple: to provide the support you need to understand your project’s objectives, ensuring vessel compliance, safety, and operational efficiency while also minimizing associated costs and concerns.

As an ADEC Innovation, we are committed to developing and offering innovative products and services that drive organizational value and deliver impact while leading the industry toward an environmentally sustainable future. Along with making significant contributions shaping policies and standards in  Australasia, the UK and EU, the World Maritime University, Tanzania, and Mauritius, we have established AusClass, a Domestic Classification Society, to introduce innovative standards and regulations designed to encompass future fuel technologies. This initiative will provide intelligence and competitive advantages to vessel owners considering the conversion or construction of ships equipped with alternative propulsion systems.
