Bennett Offshore

Bennett Offshore Provides

Services from Concepts

to Detailed Engineering

  • Since our founding in 1997, owners and operators of mobile drilling and production units and offshore marine vessels around the globe have turned to Bennett Offshore’s engineers for help with everything from small naval architecture and structural issues to fleet newbuilds and upgrades. We built our reputation by finding innovative answers to our clients' toughest challenges. Today, we remain a small, dedicated team of experienced engineers, but we have become a leading name in the offshore industry.

    In 2012, Bennett Offshore became part of Keppel Offshore and Marine, giving us access to Keppel's renowned construction support and enabling us to provide a full range of solutions, from concepts to systems and detailed engineering to turnkey engineering, procurement and construction projects.

    Bennett collaborated with the Offshore Technology Development group of Keppel Offshore & Marine to design the high-tech ORCA series of liftboats and self-elevating platforms. The first ORCA 2500, customized for the Middle East and North Africa, was delivered to a Qatari rig operator in Febuary 2016. A high-specification ORCA 3500 is currently under construction by Keppel FELS for delivery in Q4 2017. We have one SEP designed specifically for the transportation and installation of offshore wind turbines. Bennett designs can be built by Keppel or at approved yards anywhere in the world.

    No project is too big or too small for Bennett Offshore. Despite our growth, small consulting, naval architecture and structural projects remain an important facet of our business. We can provide any level of engineering support our clients may require. Our mission remains the same as it was when we opened our doors years ago, to become the most trusted name in offshore engineering.
