Welcome to Northern Divers (ENG) Ltd
NORTHERN DIVERS (ENG) LTD specialise in underwater civil engineering, commercial diving to 50 metres, inland and coastal work (up to 12 miles offshore), harbour and dock maintenance, salvage, sluice / gate maintenance, structural inspections and repairs, windfarm operations, hydrographical surveys, bridge inspections and pipeline installations, to name but a few of our services.
The container is outfitted with the following hardware sufficient to support safe Air / Nitrox diving operations complete with shortened 60” Decompression Chamber allowing for minimal deck space requirement.
The operations will be conducted from the heavy lift barge `Norma` and will initially start with a detailed diving inspection of the boat to determine its condition and position on the seabed. From this survey the lift plan will be formulated.
The lifting will consist of passing wire strops under the U-Boat and connecting them to spreader beams on the port and starboard side. Onto these beams the main lift wires will be connected from the lift barge. Once all rigging is completed UB38 will be lifted approximately 3-4m clear of the seabed, then carefully towed two miles to its new resting place. Once in position, it will be lowered back onto the seabed and the lifting wires will be disconnected.
