IMCA ’s Offshore Survey Division is concerned with all aspects of offshore surveying, positioning and inspection work.
IMCA’s Offshore Survey Division members carry out underwater surveys throughout the exploration and development phases of offshore projects. They also play a vital role in tasks as diverse as the laying and maintenance of pipelines and transoceanic telecommunications cables, environmental studies, harbour and coastal engineering works and offshore engineering and construction. Survey contractors provide signals for vessel positioning, as well as supplying and operating the positioning equipment on board a vessel.
As survey companies often work closely with other marine contractors, we provide a key link between the different groups sharing equipment and space on a single vessel. Survey contractors also benefit from - and contribute to - guidance produced by our other technical divisions, such as the Marine Division’s documents on positioning systems and DP.
Our Guidance documents cover the state-of-the-art technology used by the offshore survey sector. We have also published a standard contract for survey support services.
Assistance with the implementation of personnel competence assurance and assessment schemes is another focus area for this division.
