Your solution for Oil&Gas subsea valves
RP Engineering is a Limited Liability Company, consisting of Chartered engineers.
Our core business is in delivering highly qualified engineering support on
subsea valves for the Oil&Gas applications.

The Headquarters are in Lecco, northern Italy.

Our Clients are located worldwide; to reduce their dead-time imposed by different time zones, and to optimize the interactions, our working time is in-phase with their own.
RP-Engineering is ISO 9001:2008 qualified as “Engineering consultancy for energy market
in design, structural analysis and inspections” with Lloyd’s Register, with the Approval
certificate No. LRC 6025682/QMS/U/EN.

Client-focused partnership
The vision in which, we at RP-Engineering identify
ourselves, is very simple:
to be in the Oil&Gas market as the engineering company, distinguished for the rapidity with which we deliver engineered solutions for Oil&Gas subsea valves design, optimization, manufacturing.

Therefore, our vision is built by implementing a
Client-oriented approach.
Our goal is creating partnership relations with our Clients and staying focused on their needs; our primary objectives are to be involved since the early phase of the valve design.

This allows us to fully integrate our deliverables into those of our Clients, with the capability to cover from the single deliverable package up to the whole production chain, that turns out in a tangible advantage for our Clients.

The RP Engineering way
Our approach, and consequently our way of working, is completely conceived,
built around and tailored to our Clients.

Thanks to our simultaneous multidisciplinary approach,
we act as Process Owner on befalf of our Clients,
getting towards robust solutions in a fast way.

All our deliverables are managed as a whole process, constantly monitored in all the phases.
The best collateral advantage that turns into our Clients' benefit is an overall lead time reduction.

Samples of some linear and non-linear FEA analyses, performed at the Consolidated Design phase,
are shown in a sequence that reflects their workflow.

The whole set of deliverables is not shown here, but the evidence of the final product functionality
is measured by our Clients' satisfaction.
