Class Inspection: we inspect the condition of your vessel!
For your vessel and its maintenance, it is important to be clear in what condition it is in. The class inspection of DIVER Underwater Contractors B.V. focuses on the part of your vessel that is underwater. Because your vessel is mainly exposed to many different influences underwater, an optimal condition is important. This inspection gives you as the client an accurate picture of the current condition of the underwater hull, without it having to go to dry dock.
During the inspection, in the presence of the class surveyor, the diver will give you a detailed view of the underwater areas. Critical points are inspected and observations are recorded of, among other things:

In this way we ensure that your ship is out of service as short as possible.
