About Us



Due to the often commercially sensitive nature of the work we undertake for our clients, not all projects can be accompanied with a detailed case study or testimonial.

However, you can see below some of the feedback we have received from our clients who are in the position to release public comments. Although many clients do not wish to release any project information, they are often happy to provide positive references based on the work that DOCAN have completed. If you would like to understand our track record in your industry or engineering discipline, please get in touch using the contact link below.


“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.”

“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 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.”

“We recently trialled 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.”


Harrison Steele – Structural Engineer, WSP Adelaide. July 2020


“We at Power Chokes feel that DOCAN Ltd has provided excellent service in Finite Element Analysis of our RCD products.

They have proven themselves to be a critical element of our design process, never failing to deliver. Their methods and insights are invaluable to any design process.

We look forward to a continued relationship with DOCAN in the years to come.”
