Offshore Construction and Support Vessels

The marine contracting industry relies on a variety of specialist vessels to support its global operations (see ‘our industry‘). These vessels are purpose-built for specific operations ranging from pipe and cable laying through heavy lift to supporting diving and ROV operations. They are crewed with professionals who need to use a variety of new technologies safely and efficiently.

IMCA publishes a range of guidance documents to help members ensure safe and efficient operations. The expertise and experience of companies operating these advanced vessels in all the world’s oceans, in its deepest waters and in often in extreme environments is brought together in a comprehensive set of documents.

IMCA also commissions and publishes technical reports on topics including reviews of critical equipment, such as navigation systems and thrusters.
