Our multi-skilled access teams provide a safe, reliable, time-effective and cost-effective means of carrying out inspection, repair and maintenance, onsite and onshore, to drilling rigs and subsea construction vessels visiting the port.

We use rope access as a safe and cost-effective method of carrying out tasks in inaccessible areas that would otherwise require scaffolding or a shipyard visit to complete. Our teams work to IRATA and SPRAT guidelines and boast an exemplary safety record in all disciplines.

We offer a range of specialist access solutions that allow us to cater for any of our clients’ IRM requirements, including tension netting, scaffolding, engineered decking and micro ROV.


We offer an extensive suite of Inspection Services that can be tailored to meet your project requirements.

Our bespoke inspection services include Eddy Current Inspection (NDT inspection used to detect surface-exuding defects); Ultrasonic Inspection (applicable to most materials with good sound transmission); Magnetic Particle Inspection (proven method of detecting minute surface/near-surface flaws in ferrous materials); Dye Penetrant Inspection (to detect surface extruding flaws); Hardness Testing (to provide highly accurate hardness readings on polished surfaces); Visual Inspection (utilising low power magnifiers, microscopes & telescopes; boroscopes, endoscopes & fibre-optic devices used where access is restricted); Wall Thickness Testing (ABS and DNV-approved service supplier for hull thickness gauging; also applicable to low & high pressure pipework systems).


We are a leading provider of in-field engineering and contracting services to the offshore oil and gas industry. We specialise in the inspection, repair, enhancement and maintenance of offshore drilling rigs.

Our experienced teams provide turnkey solutions to deliver schedule-focused projects which mitigate the risk of lost revenue for clients caused by yard stays. We also carry out bespoke integrity and enhancement projects on existing offshore assets such as drilling rigs, marine vessels and fixed platforms.

Much of our work focuses on semi-submersible and jack-up rigs operating in European and West African waters, specialising in a combined OPEX/CAPEX market.


We are an IMCA-accredited Diving Contractor providing specialist Inspection, Maintenance & Repair (IRM), Construction, Decommissioning Support and Salvage & Recovery services. We operate in the air range (0-50m) specialising in Nitrox diving which promotes extended bottom times and reduces decompression burdens on our divers.

Our diving equipment facilitates both vessel-based and daughtercraft diving operations, with our new Zone 2 rated areas using our ATEX spread. Each equipment spread (including the daughtercraft) is equipped with a three-diver Nitrox panel, allowing for two working divers with an emergency standby diver topside.


We have an unrivalled reputation in the protective coatings sector, utilising proven methods, applied to internationally recognised standards, that ensure zero risk of overspray.

With the extremely challenging conditions for production platforms, offshore drilling rigs, offshore & onshore wind turbines and bridges in mind, our experienced teams apply proven and tested coatings systems that provide front-line corrosion protection from the most destructive ambient conditions.
