Commercial Diving Operations
Our Commercial Dive Team mobilise the surface supply dive equipment and travel to the lake area of concern. The dive team set up the compressor and took turns in scanning the bottom of the lake, recording any areas of concern that may contain hazardous pieces or deep weed growth. The report was compiled and referenced against photos and submitted to the client.
This commercial diving job enables the safety of swimmers and other water uses of these lakes to be informed of potential unsafe areas of the lake. After this survey, the owner of the lake arranged for the lake to be cleared of the major hazards which were identified by our dive team.
Penguin Enclosure Cleaning: Marine life enclosures need cleaning regularly and our team are lucky to have built a relationship with penguins at The International Antarctic Centre.
When the team began this task the penguins were extremely apprehensive about a diver being in their home. After a few visits it has become a part of normal life for the penguins now and they swim happily with the dive team whilst they are vacuuming their home and cleaning their windows.
Pipeline Inspections: Outfall pipes, storm water, sewage, manholes and pipelines need to be checked and maintained as part of council consents and the benefit of the members of the community.
The Marinetec commercial diving team regularly are tasked to complete inspections both off the Canterbury Coast line, at sea, in harbours, within the cities around the South Island. These tasks are potentially in contaminated water ways and extra care is needed by the team.
Wharf and Jetty Repairs: Marinetec commercial dive team get involved with the engineering team on wharf and jetty repairs and builds.
