Marine Division Committee

Our aim

IMCA’s Marine Division Committee is concerned with all aspects of specialist offshore vessel operations. Our continuous thirty year work history, since the formation of the Dynamic Positioning Vessel Owners Association in 1989, establishes us as the leading industry body on Dynamic Positioning. The International Maritime Organization recognises us in the regard.

Our activities

Our Marine Division Management Committee is the parent committee for our specialist areas which include Dynamic Positioning, Renewable Energy and Vessel Assurance through our eCMID system.
