The EXMAR TECHNICAL team is located at the Antwerp headquarters and has decades of experience in handling a wide variety of maritime oil & gas projects. The team consists of highly qualified engineers and seafaring officers serving onshore who work closely in cooperation with engineers, naval architects and draft designers at the company's offices in Houston (EXMAR Offshore Company) and Paris (DVO).
EXMAR TECHNICAL works on conceptual designs with customers and technology providers, and thereby coordinates Front-End Engineering & Design (FEED) studies. On the basis of these studies, EXMAR TECHNICAL develops with candidate shipyards the building specifications and engages in newbuilding contract negotiations. Post contract signing, EXMAR TECHNICAL takes care of the newbuilding project management, design drawing review and finally the on-site construction supervision and commissioning. Its mission is to contribute to EXMAR's vision of supporting sustainable growth by achieving the highest level of quality in the delivered newbuilding assets.
The work at EXMAR TECHNICAL is to also keep challenging the company's own success formulas and to stay on the lookout for new market opportunities with innovative technical solutions. For this purpose, EXMAR TECHNICAL is organized as knowledge management center for the EXMAR Group in terms of collecting operational feedback from EXMAR’s fleet, monitoring technology trends and participating in technical studies throughout the maritime oil & gas industry. It actively provides technical solutions for optimizing and upgrading the fleet as well as supporting the business development team with innovations to anticipate future customer needs and market requirements.
