GINA KROG modules delivered
August 2016 - The GINA KROG modules were delivered to the offshore installation site where the SAIPEM 7000 lifted the modules off the vessels and installed them onto the jacket structure. The 10,000 t MSF took less than 10 hours to hook-up, lift-off, and install. Total installation time of all 4 modules was less than 5 days including 1-1/2 days of weather delay. Argonautics Marine Engineering, Inc. was involved in some of the transport engineering as well as the transport project management. The lift-off operations completed over 2 years of involvement in this challenging transport project.

Recruiting scam
Some unauthorized individuals (one by the name of Mrs. Furdek Dorka Hrvatsko who claims to be a Senior Recruiting Manager at our company, which she is NOT) are exploiting our good company name and illegally copied our logo and email signature to try to recruit ship crews. If you receive a job offer to work for us, please be aware that this is a scam! On the right  is a copy of the signed "contract" complete with fake signatures and a fake Director of Fleet & Technical Operations...

We have not figured out what the purpose of this scam is, but it will likely involve getting money out of innocent people. We recommend to not respond to their request to sign up. It will be a waste of your time and money.

We do not own or operate any ships and never recruit ship personnel.
