Staff - Offshore Ship Design


The staff of Offshore Ship Design distinguish themselves in two ways:
  1. Individually, they are experts in their disciplines, recognized in the industry in all key offshore engineering disciplines: Naval Architects, structural engineers, marine systems engineers and riser engineers.
  2. Together, they are seamlessly integrated into a team through many years working side by side on world class projects.
Even before Offshore Ship Design started business more than six years ago, the technical leads were already working together as the deepwater systems team at a major EPCI contractor (responsible for NaKika semisubmersible, Kizomba A and B TLPs and the Magnolia TLP). The benefits of the longstanding relationship between discipline leads, working together to solve tough challenges designing offshore platforms, cannot be overstated. Offshore Ship Design is much more than a collection of highly qualified individuals, the company represents a seamless design team ready to support your project.
