MISTRAS’ Diving Services provide industry-leading inspection and maintenance solutions for assets in marine and subsea environments, including bridges, harbors, dams & reservoirs, offshore platforms, underwater pipelines, and highly-contaminated areas such as nuclear fuel tanks.
Many assets in the civil infrastructure, oil & gas, and power generation industries are fully- or partially-submerged in water, which creates a potentially-corrosive environment that can affect the structural and mechanical integrity of critical assets. Our diving services help clients stay aware of and repair their assets’ conditions in subsea environments.
Our diving teams are trained and experienced in providing asset protection services to support subsea inspection, construction, repair, and engineering services projects. We also make use of robotic technology called remotely-operated vehicles (ROVs) to perform imaging and non-destructive testing (NDT) inspections on hard-to-reach or hazardous subaquatic locations.
MISTRAS keeps safety a priority while conducting underwater services with added efficiency and reduced cost. Combining advanced technology with diverse technical skillsets, we are a complete resource for subsea asset protection, providing:
MISTRAS’ trained divers utilize advanced non-destructive examination (NDE) equipment and imaging technology for subsea assets. Our diving teams are tailored to the needs of your assets, accommodating specific environments, project requirement, and asset types.
Where possible, MISTRAS also deploys subsea ROVs as a tool to avoid or minimize manned entry into potentially-hazardous underwater environments.
Our ROVs are configured for conducting various robotic NDT inspections of maritime areas, sub-sea canals, dams, bridges, sunken structures, and piping/pipelines. They can be equipped with a variety of NDT sensors, sonar, lighting, and high-resolution imaging and video cameras.
Offered as parts of an integrated inspection plan or as individual services, MISTRAS’ divers can support underwater construction projects and/or repair damaged subsea assets to ensure structural integrity.
MISTRAS' environmental impact assessments ensure that construction practices uphold environmentally-friendly habits, and that all proposals are consistent with good environmental management procedures.
Our marine surveys include assessing and monitoring any assets and equipment that will be used in marine environments to ensure that they are in good operating condition and are fit for safe usage in marine environments.
We also offer species monitoring programs, which estimate population sizes and trends of various animal and plant species that are present within the environment to ensure safety.
Working in nuclear environments and other areas with contaminated waters (such as waste-water plants) requires carefully-trained technicians. MISTRAS divers have experience in project planning, equipment selection, wall lining installation, and inspection in these hazardous areas.
We also perform services in drinkable water sources. Our technicians follow specified procedures to ensure proper intervention with no threat of contamination by utilizing dedicated equipment to work in watersheds.
