Message from CEO
Our range of business activities is mainly centered on Japan’s territorial and exclusive economic zones (EEZ) which have an extremely wide diversity in their depth range, geological formative processes, environmental conditions, ecosystems and so on. From ancient times, people living in Japan’s islands have been strongly influenced by these surrounding waters and in recent centuries, these marine environments and ecosystems have been deeply impacted by human development.
OEC is an engineering company which is operating with the purpose of “Connecting the Oceans and Society through Marine Surveying” in Japan’s waters, waters which possess a high potential in a wide range of industries both globally and locally.
In particularly, we are a leading company in Japan in the field of route surveys for submarine infrastructures, i.e., communication cables, power cables and pipelines.
Economic activity in Japan’s water is now dramatically changing due to the recent initiation of Offshore Wind Farm projects. Consequently, we shall actively work to maintain our leadership as we update and enhance our survey and engineering techniques for our customers. We do this as a reflection of our motto “Reliability, Accuracy, Safety and Rapidity”.
