Dive Stations

Dive control vans

Global designs and builds its own Dive Control Vans (DCV). They are built in TEU twenty-foot equivalent unit containers, allowing for easy lifting and transport. The dive control room houses the gas rack that monitors and controls the divers’ breathing gases, back-up air system, video monitoring/recording equipment, and the communications equipment needed to talk with the diver and other parties involved. The other portion of the DCV is a workshop, complete with bench, large assortment of tools and spare parts. DCVs can be used on their own or as a part of Dive Support Vessel (DSV).

Dive support vessels

Dive Support Vessels (DSV) are constructed out of barge units sized to meet the requirements of the job and support equipment.Dive operations can also be carried out from a boat, ship, flat deck, or derrick barge if it is suitable for the project.

Surface dive stage with LARS

The dive stage and launch-and-recovery system (LARS) is a controlled method to lower and raise a diver and/or equipment back and forth from the dive platform to the water. Reasons for using this system include an air gap that is too great for a diver to climb a ladder or when divers are working under a significant amount of in-water decompression.

Trailer stations

Global has several dive trailers, similar to the DCVs, that house the dive control station and have a small work space. These can be towed to dive sites that are on shore, offering greater protection from the weather and increased capabilities.

Truck stations

For jobs that require quick response, truck stations are a cost-effective options for projects located shore or dock side. Trucks have a diver’s air compressor, two diver umbilicals, modular video monitoring and recording equipment, rack box, and communications equipment that can be moved for agile response.

Our surface-supplied dive stations are fully equipped to meet day-to-day commercial diving needs and exceed the standards set by OSHA, USCG, ADCI, IMCA, as well as state and local agencies. We also maintain a fleet of portable decompression chambers to accommodate remote locations and deep-water or mixed-gas diving.

Surface-supplied dive stations can be configured to meet specific needs. Mobile stations are also easy to setup where needed; including inside buildings and on truck beds, barges, or vessels. Dive stations range from rapidly-deployable shallow-water spreads to complex saturation diving installations.

Safety is our top priority. All dive stations are outfitted with redundant systems to ensure uninterrupted supply of breathing gas to the diver.
