About IHC Engineering Croatia d.o.o. 

IHC Engineering Croatia d.o.o. (IEC), is a subsidiary of Royal IHC.

Within Royal IHC, IEC is a part of Functional discipline Engineering, which alongside the design and engineering of vessels and equipment built by Royal IHC’s own shipyards, is engaged by ship owners and shipyards around the world to support them with a range of ship design and engineering services. Typically these solutions are tailored to customer requirements. 


Following an integrated approach allows for a controlled development of a ship design or shipbuilding project. In effect, this starts with the development of a concept design and continues up to a production information package, which ensures that the desired functionality of the vessel is achieved and the construction risk removed. 

Along this way, we have become a knowledge centre in detail engineering with continuous collaboration with Royal IHC’s yards, same as with the yards of other clients. Beside detail engineering, we continuously grow with providing basic engineering services. 

In addition to collaborating with Royal IHC, we stand out by having a wide focus on the maritime sector, actively working for external customers as well and other partners to continually develop our expertise in the cruise ship, mega yacht, and special equipment engineering sector. This we can offer our employees a broad variety of engineering scopes. 

Considering Croatia's long-standing tradition in the shipbuilding sector, we are perfectly positioned to develop the talented local engineering skills vital to continually delivering exceptional professional standards in the global maritime industry. 

Rijeka office


Our main office is based in Rijeka, which is the third-largest city in Croatia. As the country's principal seaport, it has an extensive history of shipbuilding and is a desirable place to live.  Due to long term expanded work flow and commitment of delivering localized services, we broadened our engineering team in 2018 with a branch office in the picturesque city of Pula. Pula is the largest city in the lstria region, which is also known for its long-standing heritage in the shipbuilding industry.
