On Thursday evening 31/10 we were contacted to carry out an urgent diving intervention to replace a damaged mixer under water in an aeration tank. This served to be carried out as soon as possible because the aeration tank needs to be in full working order. Thursday night we have arranged a dive team to carry out the works on Friday 1/11 (on a holiday!) on the site at Lommel. Arrived on the site our dive team has discussed the (dive) work with our client. The necessary preparations were made and safety regulations discussed and taken. Thanks to our customer and the good co-operation was the job done in “no time”!
During cargo operations on a breakbulk terminal ( In Antwerp ) a large pipe fell into the water.
Such pipe can be of great danger to nearby vessel traffic, this means the pipe had to be salvaged as soon as possible.
Locating the pipe was another issue. Therefore we have sonar equipment available in order to locate the pipe. After searching for a while, we succeeded to locate the pipe and thus our diver went in to install the slings around the pipe.
With the assistance of the shorecrane we managed to hoist the pipe back onshore.
Our diving team takes care of diving works and several salvages such as;
- steel plates
- mobile cranes
