With the foundation of Dutch Offshore Contractors (DOC) in 2011, we ‘laid the keel’ of an independent company with a team of highly-experienced professionals to serve the heavy transport needs of clients in the global maritime industry.
Marine heavy transport is in the roots and DNA of our company. Our founder Mr Dave Hangoor served as Captain on a semisubmersible heavy cargo vessel for many years, before definitively setting foot on dry land, and starting Dutch Offshore Contractors in 2011.
Since then, a solid track record of heavy transport projects executed and continuously growing expertise and network, lead us to venture in 2017 into a new segment of the offshore industry; Subsea cable logistics, mainly for offshore wind players. From suitable vessel selection, to carousel & equipment supply, to (trans)spooling operations, to transport, to storage; We proudly offer it all under the DOC Cable Solutions umbrella.
In the Dutch port of Flushing Buitenhaven, in close vicinity and with direct access to the Northsea, we have our own deepsea port terminal, with (trans)spooling facilities and ample quayside space for handling and storage of subsea cable carousels, as well as a total of 450m mooring pier for lay-by of a variety of vessel.
