David F. Niolet – Director of Naval Architecture Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding
"The professional relationship between Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding (NGSB) and Downey Engineering Corporation (DEC) has spanned several long-term projects. Beginning in 1997, DEC played a vital role in the detail engineering design and subsequent production support for the Navy’s new amphibious assault ship, San Antonio Class LPD-17. DEC has provided on site support personnel who participated in all facets of the structural design including features routinely required for all naval vessels with unique special enhancements incorporated into this class. The collaboration demonstrated by their personnel on this project started immediately after contract award and has continued with all personnel exhibiting the utmost dedication and professionalism. Because of our continued satisfaction and confidence in the quality of DEC professionals, NGSB has contracted with DEC on subsequent projects including the U S Coast Guard’s National Security Cutter and most recently the U S Navy’s DDG-1000 destroyer."
Rocky R. Romero – Manager, New Projects (retired) Texaco Angola
“Downey Engineering Corp. provided on-site project engineering personnel during the installation phase of our central, Block 2, FSO, offshore Angola, West Africa. Their ability to quickly become part of our team, jump into the long history of the project, sort out details, and prioritize work plans in a timely manner was essential. Their subsequent coordination of international vendors and sub-contractors lead to completion of site preparations in advance of the FSO’s arrival. That allowed our first offloading to our export shuttle tanker to be done on schedule and was a total success.”
Arthur F. d’Aquin, Jr. – former Vice President P. T. Freeport Indonesia
“When PT Freeport Indonesia needed an engineering firm to provide due diligence for our tug/barge construction projects in Singapore, we selected Downey Engineering Corporation. Their engineering personnel possess extensive ship design and construction experience, which qualify them to identify potential problems and provide us with accurate construction progress reports. With this information we were able to accurately target the “true” tug/barge delivery date and plan our transportation services essential to our mining operations. Thanks for a job well done.”
