Dutch equipment, vessels and services provider Royal IHC is creating a new office in Pula, Croatia in order “to strengthen its engineering capacity.”
Officially opening in September, the office will be supervised by IHC subsidiary IHC Engineering Croatia – based in Rijeka – which specializes in design and engineering services for vessel owners and shipyards.
Announcing the creation of its new office on Friday, IHC noted that Pula is well known as one of the main maritime centers in Croatia. IHC’s new local office will allow it to utilize the pool of practical knowledge and maritime engineering experience available in the region.
In addition, it will provide engineering support services to IHC’s shipbuilding cluster. It will deliver the full spectrum of basic and detailed engineering services required for the hull design through to outfitting.
New job opportunities
IHC is aiming to grow the office in Pula to a capacity of around 20 experienced engineers by the end of 2018, with further growth planned for the coming year.
