Underwater safety is a wide area covering a number of diverse activities. A part of them, when carried out by divers, is burdened with multifaceted risk. It may also be impossible to carry them out due to hard-to-reach spaces or other specific environmental conditions. Continuous monitoring over a certain period of time also creates many inconveniences when using traditional solutions. The offer of Eversub is a response to the provision of professional services supporting and ensuring underwater safety.
What may the issue of underwater safety include?
The underwater world – in the open sea, in a port, water reservoirs or watercourses – is hard to reach for persons who do not have proper equipment and skills. Furthermore, such world is normally not monitored, giving rise to numerous dangerous behaviors and situations, as well as abuses. What can underwater works in support of safety include?
Searching for hazardous materials and smuggled goods
Underwater hiding places, vessel hull bottoms or other places are often attractive locations for concealing smuggled drugs, weapons or creating illegal underwater storage. Explosives or other materials may endanger people, hydro-engineering structures, vessels or the environment. They should be effectively discovered and extracted or reported to competent services.
Monitoring of hydro-engineering structures
Terrorist and sabotage threats for hydro-engineering structures are one of the key problems in this field of activities. Underwater spaces are the most likely to be subject, since they are relatively easy to hide. Ports can also be an area of hostile activities consisting in penetration by scuba divers and moving underwater objects as part of sabotage and spy activities. Therefore, underwater monitoring of port structures, intended to detect potential hostile activities, is one of the aspects of the Eversub operations. Effective detection of hazards is the key objective in ensuring safety.
