IMCA ’s Marine Division is concerned with all aspects of specialist vessel operations and marine equipment, with a focus on dynamic positioning (DP) and general marine construction.
IMCA Marine Division members operate the specialist vessels that are used both directly to undertake offshore and subsea construction, pipe and cable laying and supply activities, and to support the work of contractors in our other technical divisions – Diving, Offshore Survey and Remote Systems & ROV. They also operate accommodation and drilling vessels, shuttle tankers and floating production units.
We provide members with guidance on topics ranging from lifting operations and the design and specification of vessels and equipment through to work planning and procedures. We also focus on personnel training, certification and ongoing competence assessment.
Vessel auditing and inspection is an important area of activity. Our Common Marine Inspection Document (CMID) aims to reduce the number of inspections carried out on individual marine vessels by providing a common standard.
IMCA members can view further information on the work of the Marine Division Management Committee in the IMCA members-only area of the website.

Two highly respected International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) documents, often written into contracts by clients, have been fully revised and published. ‘Guidelines for the Design and Operation of Dynamically Positioned Vessels’ (IMCA M103 Rev 2), and ‘Guidance on Failure Modes & Effects Analyses (FMEA)’ (IMCA M166 Rev 1) are both now freely available on the IMCA website.
IMCA's 2016 Contracts & Insurance Seminar, being held in London at No. 4 Hamilton Place on Wednesday 25 May, will focus on the deterioration in contracting terms in the post-Macondo and post-$100 barrel oil business environment. In particular, the seminar will consider the potential risks of unlimited liability – for pollution, damage to work and consequential losses – and their impact on the marine contracting world.
