Underwater Test Facilities

With two Underwater Test Facilities at our disposal we can offer our clients comprehensive benchmarking and testing of products & services, as well as on-site training and operations at affordable prices.

Our main Underwater Test Facility is based within the Port of Barrow in Furness. The sixty metre stretch of dock frontage makes an ideal area for large scale project testing. The dock is eight metres deep and with its floor covered by a natural stratified sludge, it makes an ideal proving ground especially for the nuclear industry.

Meanwhile our indoor test facility located within our extensive workshop provides the ability to test indoors in all weather conditions and with excellent viewing capabilities. And is ideal for carrying out some sort of testing to do with concept work in a discreet controllable environment.

The testing of many diverse prototypes and products include:

  • Sonar Innovation by Tritech
  • Offshore Rig Surveillance Equipment by Fortis (for Shell UK)
  • Harsh Environment Tooling by Sellafield Sites
  • Hose Deployment Systems by ACKtiv Nuclear
