DOC’s engineers have developed and executed solutions not only in the cable segment, but also in various other segments of the marine industry, for example odd size cargo (un)loading and transportation. This gives them a multi-faceted skill and experience level, and out-of-the-box solutions mentality. As a result, our team can thoroughly analyze every aspect and challenge of a project, in order to come to the most efficient, cost-effective and practical solution, which before implementation will be presented to the client in a tangible 2D/3D rendering model.
