Our People - Naval Architects, Master Mariners, Marine, Civil, Structural and Subsea Engineers

People are the backbone of any consultancy business. We have over 400 professionally qualified full-time employees and dedicated contract personnel from a wide variety of backgrounds - including twenty nationalities and at least twelve languages. Collectively they offer a diverse range of technical skills and expertise, as well as an understanding of the cultures, customs and sensitivities of the countries in which we operate.

Master Mariners

LOC’s master mariners have a broad spectrum of nautical backgrounds. Their seagoing and command experience includes tankers, LNG and LPG carriers, bulk carriers, container vessels, general cargo, passenger ferries and liners, offshore construction vessels, tugs and AHTS (anchor handling tug supply) vessels. Many of our master mariners also have shore management experience as superintendents and fleet managers.

Civil Engineers

Our civil engineers have designed and built ports, harbours and offshore structures, and worked on bridges, cranes and offshore cargo-handling facilities. At LOC, we use their engineering knowledge on fixed object damage cases, offshore structure transportation and installation, and on general engineering consultancy work.

Marine Engineers

Like our master mariners, our marine engineers come from various seagoing backgrounds. Many have served as Chief Engineer, and have worked ashore in management, as superintendents, and for classification societies.

Naval Architects

LOC’s naval architects have specialist knowledge and experience in the design and construction of ships and floating offshore structures.  They have worked for shipyards, classification societies, ship operators and offshore energy companies, and contractors among others.

Structural Engineers

Many of our structural engineers have worked in the offshore oil and gas industry, so are extremely knowledgeable in the design and build of fixed, floating and subsea offshore drilling and production facilities. They also have expertise in other maritime structures such as cranes and port conveyor systems.

Subsea and Pipeline Engineers

These specialist engineers have offshore oil and gas industry backgrounds, and have worked on the design and installation of subsea facilities and pipelines.
