  • We are one of the UK’s leading specialists in the repair and cathodic protection of steel and concrete marine structures, as well as salvage work, with our own fully resourced diving division. From the seabed to the splash zone, we devise innovative and specially-tailored methods of restoring the structural integrity of marine structures, increasing their longevity, in a safe, efficient and economic fashion.

    Our divers have the experience to work in all conditions, from the Red Sea to the Antarctic. We are experts at operating in busy harbours and berths, in areas where access is difficult and visibility is low or non-existent.

    Using mobile units and our ROV services, our teams of highly qualified divers carry out initial visual and ultrasonic surveys. We are then able to offer you a quick and complete solution, which will minimise disruption and reduce the diving hours, thereby saving you time and money.
