At IMECA we enable our clients to construct the infrastructure for offshore energy production, and do offshore transhipment.


We are client driven with a strong technological base. Rational, Economic, Elegant & Light is part of our DNA. We are at our best as sparring partner for our clients, deeply involved in their operational process where our solutions can make a difference.

We provide lifting, handling and integrated systems & services for large-scale engineering structures in the offshore energy and offshore bulk handling markets.

With everything we do we have a strong focus on:

  • Water-depth 14m
  • Quay side 600m
  • Fabrication and assembly workshops 4750m²

We have a wide range of test facilities enabling our equipment to be thoroughly tested throughout the production process and before delivery.

This will allow fast and smooth installation, commissioning and testing onboard.

Our La Rochelle facility on the French Atlantic Coast is accessible for seagoing vessels. We can assemble large structures at our quayside from where they can be transported or lifted on board.
