We are certified for the performance of inspections in lieu of dry-docking by the following Class Societies:

  • American Bureau of Shipping
  • Lloyd’s Register
  • Bureau Veritas
  • DNV-GL

These certifications and approvals allow Standard Diving & Marine Contractors to perform In-Water Surveys for mobile offshore units, structures, and ships. Acceptance is based on established quality control systems, organization & structure, administrative procedures, written work procedures, records of instruments, calibration logs and procedures for maintaining instruments and equipment, training programs for divers, procedures for supervision of work, dive records including qualification certificates for divers, reporting forms, and procedures for the control of subcontractors.

We employ the Cygnus 1 Underwater Multiple Echo Ultrasonic Metal Thickness Gauge for the measurement of steel substructure. The Company maintains and upgrades an underwater video and photographic equipment inventory that includes the Outland Technologies UWC-325 U/W Video System, Deep Sea Power & Light Seacam 2003 Underwater Color CCD Video Camera, and Amphibico Capsule CCD Camera Housings. Still Photography is facilitated using Nikonos Underwater Cameras with 28mm, 35mm and 80mm Close-up kits as well as Olympus D-380 Digital Camera systems. The Cameras are used in conjunction with Clearwater Camera Boxes for excellent photographic reproductions in zero-visibility waters.
