Aqualis Offshore, CSIC subsidiary team up on offshore engineering projects
Aqualis Offshore and China Ship Design & Research Center (CSDRC) have penned an agreement to cooperate in offshore engineering projects both in China and internationally.

Under the agreement, Aqualis Offshore and CSDRC will cooperate in the fields of engineering, project management, research, innovation and marketing. A key objective is to develop a joint engineering service to offshore newbuild projects in China and elsewhere.

Aqualis Offshore and CSDRC aim to provide a joint engineering service to all offshore projects, including jack-ups, semi-submersibles and FPSOs. They will also provide FEED services, including conceptual design, basic design and national research projects, plus detailed design engineering service for transportation and offshore installation of fixed platforms, floating structures and subsea facilities.

“CSDRC has a clear advantage that it can provide engineering services to CSIC’s yards in China. We will ensure that we will provide CSDRC with competitive offshore engineering competence and capacity whenever it is required,” said Peng Yongfei, Aqualis Offshore’s country manager in China.

Aqualis Offshore, part of Oslo-listed Aqualis ASA, specialises in offshore marine and engineering consultancy with a focus on shallow and deep water offshore segments of the oil and gas industry.

CSDRC, subsidiary of China Shipbuilding Industry Corp (CSIC), specialises in shipbuilding and offshore engineering services.
