Our ability to mobilize our dive equipment and personnel has led us to underwater investigations worldwide. Working on both large multi-month to single day inspections we can inspect whole ports or just conduct an emergency inspection of a specific area that was impacted, using both destructive and non-destructive testing methods in addition to visual inspection.
