ARCTEC Acquires Majority Interest In Offshore Technology Corporation

ARCTEC, internationally known Canadian specialist in cold regions engineering and research, have acquired a majority interest in the Offshore Technology Corporation (OTC) of Escondido, Calif.

OTC currently operates two of the largest model test basins in the world, and serves the needs freof the offshore industry and other organizations engaged in ocean engineering.

Their deep basin (295 feet long, 48 feet wide, 15 feet deep, with a 30-foot pit) has been the proving ground for many internationally known drilling rigs. Their shallow basin, a new and unique model testing facility (105 by 138 feet with a 5-foot depth) can simultaneously simulate wind, regular and random seas, multidirectional waves and currents, and is ideally suited for studying offshore moorings, ports, harbors, and breakwaters.

ARCTEC, which currently operates ice model testing basins, hydraulic laboratories, and cold rooms in Canada and the United States, looks forward to serving the existing and future clients of ARCTEC and OTC with a much broader range of ocean, lake, and river engineering and research services. These services will not only include model testing, but will encompass feasibility studies, engineering design, and field testing.
