The management team at FloaTEC has developed an environment that promotes professional growth, creativity and innovation. We understand that the success of this organization is directly proportionate to the success of our employees.

We are committed corporately to enhancing the value of our projects to our clients, stakeholders and employees by employing quality and safety in everything we do.



FloaTEC is a leading provider of engineering services for the design of deepwater floating production systems. We have a portfolio of deepwater solutions that include the Extended Tension Leg Platform (ETLP®), Deep Draft Semisubmersible (DDS) and the Truss Spar. However, we utilize an unbiased, concept-neutral approach to identify the optimum floating production system for a specific field development.

Our core competencies include concept screening, feasibility studies, conceptual design, front end engineering and design (FEED), detailed engineering and design, project management and technology deve-lopment. Our engineering team provides expertise in naval architecture, structural engineering, marine systems, mooring systems, risers and tendons.


WHAT differentiates us

FloaTEC is backed by two major, globally recognized companies. As a result, we are able to provide much more than engi-neering services to our clients. With access to real-time project data and cost infor-mation, within three weeks, we are able to develop an unbiased ‘snapshot’ (a detailed report) of the optimum solution for a particular field development.

In concert with the resources, procurement, fabrication and installation capabilities of our parent companies, FloaTEC is able to provide turnkey engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) services to our clients. By integrating the strengths of McDermott and Keppel FELS with the strengths of FloaTEC, we are able to deliver floating production systems with certainty – “CERTAINTY OF DELIVERY”

Integrating the strengths of FloaTEC with the strengths of McDermott and Keppel FELS greatly enhances our ability to deliver floating production systems with certainty.

“FloaTEC commits to provide high quality deepwater engineering services and technology, and deliver floating production systems with certainty by integrating parents’ resources.”
