These engineering services range from feasibility studies to detailed engineering and include also procurement services and project management services. DORIS’ expertise covers all offshore facilities: subsea systems/equipment, sealines, fixed or floating structures, mooring systems, marine operations, etc.”
The two companies will be joining their expertise and experience to work on ongoing OTEC project in Maldives and other potential projects worldwide.
