Docan Engineering Consultancy

The idea for DOCAN developed in 2015 whilst the Directors were working in Singapore and Houston TX developing high-end deep-water drilling equipment. We incorporated the company then and started operating in April 2017 in the UK.

The DOCAN ethos is to have a positive, can-do attitude. This, with experience, know-how and technology means anything is possible.

In a short period of time we have built a very strong team and developed several long-standing relationships. We have clients in the UK, North America, Asia and Australasia as well.

With our talented and experienced team and our cutting-edge tech, we strive to provide high quality engineering and support with a superior service.

We first worked with the DOCAN team in 2018 when we needed some technically challenging Mechanical Engineering to be completed to support a new R&D project. Together we achieved a correlation between test and simulation for a challenging mechanical system. Since then we have worked with DOCAN several times on projects and they have also provided training courses for some of our engineers and scientists in the use of highly non-linear analysis which has been great help. As always DOCAN quickly understand the requirements and are responsive and quick to deliver results. We look forward to collaborating with DOCAN in the future.

“We recently collaborated with Rick and his team at Docan on a bespoke piece of high end Fitness for Service and Finite Element work and we were really pleased with the high level of service and professionalism provided throughout. The communication and turnaround of the deliverables was excellent and the project was delivered both on time and within budget, delivering great results for both us and our client.”

We required some urgent fluid dynamics work to be completed to prove if a new product would work.  Having worked with Rick in a past life, we contacted his team at DOCAN and gave them the challenge.  They turned around the work quickly and gave us the advice we needed.  DOCAN can be our engineering group any time.

Rick used to work for me as the Engineering Manager when I was CEO of an offshore drilling OEM – based in North America and Asia. We gave Rick and the DOCAN team two pieces of major API 16 RCD MPD equipment which needed stress analysis based on a current ADS designs. Not only did DOCAN complete the full 3D stress analysis, they also came up with practical and thought out design and machining changes which improved the design and structural integrity of the equipment. Our equipment is used for land drilling predominantly in North America and is cutting edge. Knowing what DOCAN are capable of, we shall be using DOCAN again for many other projects in the future.”

We recently leased some ROHR2 software through DOCAN for a project at The Oxford Turbine Research Facility at the University of Oxford. We have experienced outstanding customer support and technical advice from DOCAN, who have made the use of this software a pleasure. They have been very helpful and always ready to assist in the most timeous fashion.

We recently trialed and bought some Flownex software through DOCAN. Our experience of working with DOCAN as a distribution partner of Flownex has been excellent. They are extremely approachable and knowledgeable. All our technical questions have been answered quickly and in detail. The level of customer support provided is really impressive and without hesitation we would recommend DOCAN.

James Linfield – Director, Navier Flow Consultants Ltd. June 2020

We recently bought ROHR2 software through DOCAN for use on numerous projects for South Australia’s local water authority (SA Water), which required detailed pipework stress analysis.
The software, along with excellent assistance and technical advice from DOCAN, have allowed for considerable cost and time savings, and innovative designs.
Our engineering team and clients are thoroughly impressed with DOCAN’s services and look forward to working with them on future opportunities.
