InterMoor Engineering operations are centered in our Houston, Texas headquarters. Six design and analysis teams carry out our Engineering and Research & Development activities. These teams work closely with our Operations group, and fabrication facility to provide total project solutions for our clients.

Offshore experience

Our engineers actively participate in the planning, logistics, and offshore installation and recovery operations for the systems they design. Most have an average of at least five years of offshore experience.  Our senior staff engineers average ten years offshore experience.

A diverse array of expertise

  • Hydrodynamic & Aerodynamic Analysis (vessel coefficients and models, windtunnel, and wave basin model test correlations…)
  • Mooring System Engineering, Design, Analysis & Offshore Procedure Development (frequency and time domain, fully coupled two-body analyses, DP System Simulation analyses, ...)
  • Structural Foundation Engineering, Design, Analysis & Offshore Procedure Development (suction piles, driven piles, anchors, ...)
  • Structural Installation Aid Engineering, Design, Analysis, & Offshore Procedure Development (chain tables, chutes, spiral strand alignment tools…)
  • Subsea Installation Engineering, Design, Analysis, & Offshore Procedure Development (including polyester test insert removal & replacement, umbilical installation, subsea equipment lowering analyses, mooring line and anchor installation analyses, riser pull-in and more)
