From Hong Kong and Singapore to Jakarta, Indonesia: Hawkins' International Investigators Visit Clients Worldwide

From 28 to 30 August, Dr John Allum and Dr Sophie Parsons from Hawkins’ Hong Kong office, together with Dr David Rose from Hawkins Singapore, travelled to Jakarta and were pleased to spend three days giving presentations and meeting clients around the bustling city.

At Marine Claims Offices of Indonesia (PT MCO Prima), Dr Rose and Dr Allum attended a specially‑organised seminar and were invited to give presentations on investigations of marine incidents including: fires, explosions, materials failures, lashing failures, and gas turbines. The event was warmly received, and both Dr Rose and Dr Allum (pictured) participated in a question and answer session following their presentations.

Hawkins also visited QBE Indonesia to give a presentation on fire and explosion/materials investigation. It was a pleasure to finally see QBE’s Indonesian office, as Hawkins also visited QBE in Australia this year, as well as making visits locally within the United Kingdom.

At Cunningham Lindsey, Dr Rose and Dr Allum discussed the role of a forensic scientist, and how a loss adjuster can best use the skills of a forensic engineer.

At McLaren’s, a presentation was given on the potential ways to interpret patterns of fire damage on site, as well as the importance of witness information. Dr Parsons also provided detailed comments and answers to technical questions on materials failures.

At MSIG, Hawkins discussed a wide range of cases, including transformer and gas turbine failures.

At AIG Hawkins spoke to loss adjusters interested in civil engineering, power plants, energy and complex losses.

On their last day, Dr Parsons, Dr Rose and Dr Allum met the Indonesian Insurance Organisation (AAIU), and are looking forward to taking part in their training programme in November.

The international marketing team has many other upcoming trips planned, and are grateful for all opportunities to share Hawkins’ experience and expertise worldwide. Please contact us. If you would like to schedule a visit to your office by a forensic engineer.
