Design and Engineering

CSSC has three individual R&D companies on offshore engineering:

1. Marine Design & Research Institute of China ( MARIC)

MARIC was founded in Shanghai in 1950. It is the earliest, biggest and one of the strongest institutes in technology of marine design and research for merchant ships (oil tankers, container vessels, bulk carriers), dredges, and offshore projects. MARIC is a subsidiary company of China State Shipbuilding Corporation group (CSSC).In China, many products of offshore projects firstly built were designed by MARIC. For example, the first cable-lay vessel, 900t @360°rotary lift vessel, multipurpose standby vessel (first internationally-bidded ), production platform, self-elevated drilling platform (Bohai No.1), Semi-submersible drilling unit (Kantan No.3), Jack-up in shallow water(Ganghai No.1), FPSO, etc.MARIC’s dedicated Offshore Engineering Department specially devotes to R&D of deep water offshore projects, such as FPSO, SEMI, SSHLV, drilling ship, and Jack-up units as well. MARIC has a few high efficiency and professional R&D teams. Offshore Engineering department has finished several important products and national research projects, such as detail design for a 3000m water depth submersible drilling unit, research for LNG-FPSO, VLCC size FPSO, self-elevated drilling platform. Based the above mentioned work, MARIC offshore department has built stable base and capabilities for most of offshore projects’ R&D.

2. Shanghai Merchant Ship Design & Research Institute (SDARI)

SDARI was established in 1964, it is a ship design consultant under China State Shipbuilding Corporation(CSSC), stands out as China’s first merchant ship design institute with the vastest variety of ship types, world’s leading technical edge, the most innovative and stable technical team along with the largest market share in domestic China. SDARI’s offshore products include Specialized Engineering Vessels, Offshore Support Vessels, Offshore Engineering Vessels, Offshore Platforms, etc. By the end of 2008, SDARI has received 233 awards, all are provincial level or above.

3. Guangzhou Marine Engineering Corporation (GUMECO)

GUMECO was established in 1974, and is one engineering design and scientific research organization engaged in the naval architectural and marine projects under China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC). GUMECO has about 150 employees, of whom 33 are senior engineers. The main disciplines are as follows: naval architecture/hull, outfitting, structure, mechanical, power system, auxiliary system, electrical, communication, navigation, weaponry, project management and computers etc. GUMECO has one associated company engaged in project supervision and one joint venture engaged in the design of the wave-piercing type high speed catamaran vessels.GUMECO has obtained various types of design and engineering certificates such as Class A ship design certificate, Class A offshore project engineering certificate, Class B turnkey-contract project certificate, Class A Fishery vessels design certificate and Class A construction supervision certificate issued by the departments concerned.GUMECO has possessed the advanced scientific research and design tools, including the setup of 1000 BASE-T of comprehensive line distribution system, import of application software for the ship design, structure analysis and hydrodynamic analysis etc and furnished with heavy duty network laser printers & plotters etc. ISO GB/T19001-2000 and GJB9001A-2001 system have been established and on operation, and Quality System Certification has been obtained.GUMECO main scope of work deals with the navy ship design, commercial ship design and offshore project engineering. GUMECO is in possession of the sophisticated experience in the conventional ship research & design as well as the capability in the high-performance ship design & research. GUMECO has owned certain technical know-how & patents in marine and offshore projects, taking a lead in SPM terminal system design & study at home. Since establishment, GUMECO has designed over 300 navy / commercial ships of all kinds, contracted over 40 offshore projects design & study and obtained certain awards from CSSC and provincial government.
