Steven Weiss adds five years as a deck officer with the U.S. Navy to his more than 15 years of experience as an underwriter, marine surveyor and loss adjuster. In his time leading LIU’s marine risk engineers and the Project Cargo team, he has guided the transport of more than 20 800-ton reactors. LIU Project Cargo also focuses on supporting the construction of power plants with parts delivered from many different countries including the first fully-assembled 2,400 ton Heat Recovery Steam Generators. Directing these major infrastructure projects through the submission, bind and post-binding processes, he also manages logistics and field surveys, and he uses his experience as a former owner of a marine and energy surveying and adjusting firm to guide each project to completion. “I want the client to see me as a partner in their project so we can work together to finish it on time and safely and without incident,” Weiss said.
