Commercial Diving

In 2018 Equilibrant became aware that there were no active Chartered Engineer Divers in Ireland despite Irish clients requesting this service in tenders. Recognising the opportunity to provide clients with this unique expertise, Equilibrant’s Technical Director trained to become a fully qualified HSE Surface Supplied chartered engineer diver.

In December 2020 Equilibrant became a fully registered HSE Diving Contractor. We purchased the latest surface supplied diving equipment including a top of the range HD video system and in water communication system. We employed a permanent Diving Operations Manager with over 25 years commercial diving experience ranging from inspection work to heavy civil engineering works.

As an engineering consultancy, Equilibrant is highly experienced in contract management and service delivery. We undertake bridge scour inspections including topographic/bathymetric/underwater surveys across the island of Ireland ranging from large bridge structures to confined space culverts and masonry arch structures, to tidal outlet structures, sheet pile quay walls and tidal control structures.  

We also carry out dive inspections in harbours which require detailed planning and methodical approaches to completing the tasks. We are highly experienced in mobilising diving equipment across various terrains and have a range of support boats, pontoons, and other craft to assist as required. We have RYA Level 2 divers experienced in piloting boats in all weather conditions. We work with a vastly experienced pool of Divers which include ADC certified supervisors.

As a Diving Contractor Equilibrant has evolved from offering underwater inspection work to offering civil engineering contracting work including:

anode installation/replacement
removal of silt/rubble
sealing works
cleaning and general underwater maintenance works including repair work and scour protection work.
