Subsea Intervention Support Vessels & Equipment Specification & Procurement

With a background in both marine consulting and ship & equipment broking, and also with a specific focus on sub-sea intervention support vessels and equipment, DMC Ltd have provided consulting and project management support to clients looking to procure vessels with sub-sea intervention tasks as a primary role, in one form or another. This might start with specifying suitable new-build designs or identifying existing vessels which might suit the technical objectives for the vessel. Alternatively, if a support vessel has already been acquired, then DMC have been used to assist in specifying and sourcing the required sub-sea intervention equipment, and at times this has also included sourcing suitably experienced contractors to provide the intervention services. Typically this will be Diving or ROV services, but this has also included well intervention projects.
