Underwater Engineering & Construction
Historically, many of the projects that we have undertaken are
the ones that other companies either appear to have no interest
in or are unable to carry out.
Our pioneering approach has resulted in the necessity to not only
design and build Pipe Inspection Vehicles, but to design and build
ancillary equipment, launch systems, pressurised pipe launch-pods,
intake grills and access platforms etc where proprietary equipment
was not available.
As project requirements dictate our underwater engineering department have
built live-pipe slip lining systems, blank flanges with
cable access glands, pipe sealing devices, GRP access platforms,
bespoke A frame lifting & lowering devices, removed
6-tonne steel shaft seals from an offshore barrier and replaced
them with lightweight load bearing GRP covers.
Our engineering capabilities extend to underground and underwater
operations which include: Sea outfall repairs,
lock-gate repairs, bridge support repair & stabilisation, tow
path underpinning and aqueduct repairs.
