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.
