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.
The marine contracting industry relies on a variety of specialist vessels to support its global operations
DP technology enables a vessel to maintain its position and heading using sophisticated positioning systems
IMCA ’s Marine Division assists its members to ensure the availability of personnel with the necessary skills and training to support the industry’s global operations.
If you are a member, we'd like to display your company's pictures of the important work you do on our new website.
