In marine engineering and construction, no-one can offer more creativity than DeLong. This has been proven by over thirty years experience in almost every corner of the globe.

When drilling first went offshore, the typical rig was a crude platform on pilings. DeLong put the rig on a floating barge, added jackup legs (the jacks were our idea too) and, in 1949, made offshore drill- ing mobile.

Since then, we've covered virtually every as- pect of the marine business: drilling rigs, offshore platforms, piers, bridges, tunnels, outfalls, bulk product terminals to name just a few.

Send for our new brochure. It describes just how creatively DeLong can solve your problems.
