Light Diving Craft - operations increase

There is a significant increase in the interest for LDC Diving operations in 2018 says Morten Sørenes - Managing Director Otech Marine Services Norway. 

First half of 2018 has generated more than 40 million NOK in revenue from such operations and compared to 2017 the use of Light Diving Craft diving in the North Sea has increased. Morten Sørenes expect this trend to continue.

“Although it has its limitations in respect to diving depths, the use of a customized LDC allows unique access to shallow water areas and operations that is not suitable for WROV. The LDC seems to become popular because it provides operators the benefit of reduced cost in form of a fully self-sufficient operation with a small diving organization. Our success as a service provider depends on our ability to help customers cut costs. For the client this can be in the form of minimum lost dayrates, reduced shipyard costs, no need for quay hire, mooring analysis and more.”
