Marine engineering and consultancy firm LOC has opened a new office in Hamburg, Germany, to develop the renewables and shipping offering of the Group within the region.

This will be the Group’s sixth office in Europe and its 26th office globally. Strategically located within Germany’s maritime and offshore hub, LOC’s Hamburg office will enable the Group to have a local presence in Germany. The team is placed to bid for and win competitive and non-competitive tendered work, as well as being able to leverage the services provided by Innosea and Longitude to the German renewables market.

The office will be led by Christoph Ruck and Emek Ersin Takmaz. Ruck is a Naval Architect and International Welding Engineer, with experience working with German ship owning companies operating in heavy lift and project business, and experience working with DNV GL. Takmaz is a Naval Architect and Project Manager with strong global experience in heavy lift and project cargo operations

LOC CEO Dr R V Ahilan said: “The opening of our German office marks an exciting and important strategic step for the Group, as we look to expand our Shipping and Renewables offering in Europe. I am also very pleased to have such experienced professionals as Emek and Christoph leading the team in Germany. Given our international offering and devotion to client service I believe LOC is well placed to take advantage of strong market demand for our services offering over the coming years.”
