Challenge and Results
Kew Diving has built a nationwide reputation for our services, but a recent job saw us deployed much further afield. In September 2022, we were called upon at the last minute by a fellow diving contractor. The joint assignment was to make emergency repairs to a barge on a German wind farm in the Baltic.
The team were asked to assemble in the port of Rostock, and arrived within 72 hours of the first call being made. The first task was to mobilise the dive spread onto a large anchor-handling tug, and our dive trailer was lifted onto the vessel. Following a briefing with the client, we headed off on a 5-hour journey to the site.
On arrival, we liaised with the crew of the large Jack Up barge we were due to repair. Clear and concise communication was vital to mitigate the risks to the diver. The repair was carried out quickly and successfully, and the barge was able to start working again that day.
The team were away for a week in total and travelled over 1,000 miles across Europe. We pride ourselves on our fast response and were delighted that we could help these clients on a 48 hour call out basis.
