Steven M. Lindholm, P.E., P.M.P.

Consulting Engineer

Engineering Fields
  • Mechanical
  • Marine

With 34 years in the maritime industry, being ED&T’s marine engineer allows Mr. Lindholm to return to his roots while indulging a passion for consulting with ED&T’s clients who specialize in ship, marine and cargo incidents.

Mr. Lindholm offers consultation in inspection, evaluation, and design analysis of ship construction; stability; propulsion and auxiliaries’ ballast water treatment; vibrational analyses; and ship motion. He is well-versed in the application and interpretation of international (International Maritime Organization (IMO), class society, and flag state), United States Coast Guard (USCG/CFR), and regional regulations/guidelines to maritime incidents. Mr. Lindholm has experience in root cause investigation and analysis of mechanical damage to equipment, components, and materials, including fracture analysis and failure analysis, as well as preparation of repair and replace cost estimates for marine, industrial, commercial, and residential systems.  He applies the principles of Project Management to monitor work flow of repair/reconstruction activities.  Mr. Lindholm also has experience in the design and evaluation of photovoltaic systems.

When not consulting, Mr. Lindholm spends time with his wife and three sons.  He enjoys swimming, skiing, hiking, camping, and the occasional bicycle ride.  He tends to a multitude of apple, apricot, citrus, and other fruit trees and vines throughout his yard. Not one to shy away from an engineering project, Mr. Lindholm recently equipped his home with a photovoltaic system he designed and installed, meeting the Code requirements for residential solar systems.
