About Nicola Offshore
Nicola Offshore GmbH specialises in turnkey services for the most challenging marine survey campaigns and on-demand missions in and around Europe. Working from an agile logistics and technology platform enables us to take on more complex and specialist aspects of marine surveying, including underwater object detection, unexploded ordinance (UXO), and subsea cable investigations, as well as pre- and post-dredging reports.
The company is a joint venture between Nicola Engineering GmbH, a German marine survey provider with over 40 years’ experience and ProMarine BV, a well-known and highly regarded Dutch workboat manufacturer.
We are able to review your requirements and agree to a mission within hours, ensuring that your data will be ready when you or your client needs it.
Our offshore survey platform allows us to configure the right tools for the job quickly and easily, so we hit the water ready for the challenge ahead.
Our optimised processes enable faster mobilisation and higher quality data
The non-productive time when finding a provider and waiting for an off-plan, 'gap-filler' survey to take place can be prohibitively expensive. This is why we promise to do everything we can to have your data in your hands as fast as physically possible. Our streamlined approach to each step of the survey process is designed for optimal speed and efficiency.
Decades of marine survey expertise, modern vessels and advanced instruments allow our surveyors to optimise the capture of accurate data.
We transform your data into a finished, actionable product quickly and with the precision needed to support any marine engineering operations.
Introducing new efficiencies with cutting-edge technology and integrations
Our focus on specialised applications like object search and UXO demands a resilient, high performance survey platform. We have achieved this through the unification of survey equipment, software and vessel to create a fast-response, high performing foundation for our experts to work on.
Our expert team delivers data to your door with high precision final products
Nicola Offshore was founded by Andres Nicola and Dick Duin, two well-established maritime and subsea innovators. Day-to-day operations are managed by experienced marine data industry specialist, Daniel Esser.
