Rubicon Associates provides mechanical engineering consulting and design services across the design, build, operation, and maintenance phases of a vessel’s lifecycle.

Our marine mechanical engineers specialise in the design, construction, and maintenance of mechanical and platform systems – including managing propulsion, fuel, water and air flow systems. Our engineers work closely with the vessel’s core equipment, such as main and auxiliary machinery, engines, hydraulics and more.

We support the design, development and integration of systems through developing specifications, plans, procedures, design documents and reports and implementing and delivering engineering services.

We identify any issues or hazards with mechanical systems, build and maintain capability and ensure safety in operation. Our technical experts undertake technical engineering risk assessments, safety case analysis, test and trials.

Our mechanical engineers have high-level project management skills and are well versed in a diverse range of systems and equipment utilised on RAN Platforms.

We have comprehensive expertise in technical drafting and drawing using CAD/CAE software and our mechanical engineering design projects are undertaken in accordance with recognised marine engineering design principles, regulations and standards (IMO, Class Societies, Naval Defence and Military).
