Marine Construction

Industrial level commercial diving uses surface supplied breathing apparatus and diving helmets to allow our divers the ability to safely dive alongside barges and cranes, employ the power of hydraulic tools, burning or welding equipment, in water up to 170ft deep. With the right equipment and our technical expertise we’re able to accomplish the requirements of rigorous underwater construction.

What they’re saying about Freedom Diving Systems

Freedom Diving Systems were keenly aware of the sensitive habitat near the install location. Numerous preparation dives were performed to install rock‐climbing gear to install a temporary mooring line for the work vessel, as well as bottom floats which kept lines and hoses clear of the reef.
