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.
