Many marine construction projects require the use of a skilled and experienced commercial diving team. Commercial divers are traditionally contracted to work on these projects to provide inspections, maintenance, debris removal, and various other underwater services requested to complete the job. Hiring a skilled diving team with extensive training in marine construction and inspection techniques is essential to ensuring that the project is completed successfully and safely.
MAINTENANCE AND INSPECTION
As you can imagine, commercial divers spend the majority of their working hours in rivers, lakes, and other waterways performing inspections on bridges, pipelines, dams, and retaining walls. Since these structures are submerged underwater, they are at risk of deterioration, rust, and other water-related issues. Experienced commercial divers can survey these underwater structures ensuring they are safe and meets regulations. The diver will note where repair or maintenance is required and schedule a time to complete the required work to stabilize the structure.
Commercial divers are employed to repair underwater structures like pipelines, dams, bridge piers, and retaining walls. An experienced diving team is required for this work because they know the welding techniques and other tools needed to complete these jobs. As with traditional construction, safety is a top priority in marine construction. To ensure these often-dangerous jobs are completed safely and effectively, underwater divers stay in constant communication with their topside teams to ensure there are eyes on the entire project.
DEBRIS REMOVAL AND CLEAN UP
Marine construction projects in waterways frequently leave debris and other construction materials in the water. Underwater obstructions make it difficult for waterway business operations to run smoothly. This debris, if not removed, can also impede the progress of the construction project itself. Think of any construction project, regular removal of debris from the site is required to allow machinery to move about freely, marine construction projects are no different. Commercial divers are called to remove unwanted debris in a timely, efficient, and safe manner to allow the business’s normal flow to continue.
OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY SUPPORT
Many commercial divers support the oil and gas industry. These divers work offshore, preforming underwater welding & repairs, inspections, and maintenance to ensure that oil and gas industry equipment stays up and running. This allows the oil and gas companies to pass inspections, extend the lifetime of their equipment, and limit their damage to waterways.
