Since DSV Risøy (Dive Support Vessel) was acquired in 1993, many operations for oil emptying have been carried out along Norway’s coast and in the Barents Sea.

There are still a large number of shipwrecks along the coast which are a potential environmental risk. Older steel shipwrecks will eventually rust, which can possibly lead to a hazardous leakage if the wreck contains any oil.

See videos from operations where DSV Risøy and our project team have contributed to the prevention of adverse environmental disasters.

Professional diving work requires both proper equipment, personnel and experience, but also the best HSE and quality systems in place. When subsea work needs to be done, all these factors are important when choosing a reliable supplier that can execute the work as planned and on budget.
