UK Diving Services Provide Underwater Investigations Following Severe Flooding

Our dive teams recently provided underwater support to Scotland's highways and infrastructure. UK Diving Services were contracted by Amey to provide sonar, topographical surveys and river bed profiling following severe flooding which closed the northbound carriageway of the A90 at Finovan, Scotland. The water levels were extremely high with fast flowing water threatening the integrity of the structure and making progress difficult. Scour investigations were provided along with structural evaluations of the bridge primary components such as abutments and piers etc. Water levels were above the steel deck beam pictured at the upper left of the picture!

Skye Bridge Underwater Survey For Sea Bed Profiling And Pier Support Condition

UK Diving Services Ltd have provided underwater services and support on Skye Bridge in Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland.

The underwater inspection included sea bed profiling and an underwater condition assessment of the submerged concrete caissons. All observations and findings were recorded with comparisons being drawn to the previous underwater survey of 2015 which was also provided by UKDS.

Exeter Bridge & Weir Underwater Scour Survey

UK Diving Services have provided underwater support services to AECOM infrastructure and engineering company. The purpose of the works was to determine the underwater condition of the concrete structure and better understand the river bed profile including locating any scour holes or undercut and or undermining from scouring issues. Any scour protection measures were to be recorded using digital 2D sonar imagery in nearly zero visibility murky silty water. 

Structural Surveys Of Bridges & Culverts Within The UK Infrastructure

A UK wide infrastructure company required a detailed visual inspection of their bridge assets to ensure the structural integrity of each underwater structure. UK Diving Services Ltd provided an inspection program including an assessment of every detail of the submerged structures making sure the bridges would be safe for continued use by the general public. Many of the surrounding localised areas were considered as environmentally sensative and strict environmental controls and protocols were implemented in line with our environmental policy.

The scope of our work included developing a project plan and safety program including field inspections and detailed written reports, Additionally much of the scope included recommending maintenance and or remedial repairs, recording video and photographic images. From the conclusive evidence UKDS provided rehabilitation or replacement options with associated cost estimates and options for developing technical and executive reports summarizing the findings. Our bridge surveyors and inspection teams developed carbon friendly access routes and scheduling systems that enabled efficient completion of the work. The bridge inspections were complied inline with BD 97/12 THE ASSESSMENT OF SCOUR AND OTHER HYDRAULIC ACTIONS AT HIGHWAY STRUCTURES for bridges, culverts and water management structures.

UK Diving Services Ltd ensured state government owned infrastructure remains safe allowing the bridges to continue to be a vital link within the communities they serve.



UK Diving Services Secure Underwater Inspection Of Various Bridge Structures Within Environmental Sensitive Areas

UKDS have secured several bridge inspections within the Scottish Borders contracted to Stantec UK. The surveys include underwater inspections of the submerged structural elements to determine scour and or undermining as well as better understanding of the structural integrity of the bridge piers, abutments and river beds. 

Our surveyors, engineers and environmental experts once again provide the groundwork for UK infrastructure with sustainability focused goals and environmental science woven into all our projects.



Mound Sluices Seabed Survey

UK Diving Services Ltd have provided a detailed inspection and seabed survey of Mound Sluices in Scotland.

The sonar survey comprised of 56no x 360 degree individual scans knitted together to form an accurate underwater point cloud image of where the bridge interface's with the riverbed. The underwater sonar images were  knitted with surface laser scanning data to provide a complete data package of the entire both above and below water structure. A detailed topographical survey was also recorded.


Underwater Point Cloud Surveys And Laser Scanning

Underwater Bridge Inspection - Working With AECOM

UK Diving Services have provided detailed underwater bridge surveys on behalf of AECOM. The inspections have ranged from small non tidal structures to larger marine structures adjacent tidal waterways. The underwater structural inspections were carried out by CSWIP qualified divers providing detailed written reports on the sub sea findings

Underwater Sonar - The Tool Of Choice 2022

Sonar is quickly becoming the tool of choice for aiding the underwater inspection of bridge structures. They have the ability to create detailed high resolution images around bridge footings, piers, cut water's and abutments including other areas such as sea walls, dams, river walls, ports and harbors. Sonar inspections provide valuable information on underwater submerged bridge structures which may include details of damaged components, water depths and structural measurements including undercut and scour measurements. They are ideal for creating detailed scour surveys in difficult water conditions. Underwater subsea assets and infrastructures worldwide need to be surveyed regularly for problems caused by conditions including undercut, scour, impact and or structural damage. Corrosion, debris and other causes can also cause major problems needing regular inspection. Diving surveyors and inspection engineers will provide visual surveys when water conditions are clear allowing easy working. When conditions worsen and visibility becomes impaired due to murky water a more tactile hands on survey is usually required. These underwater environments can present many hazards to working divers and fortunately todays technology gives the option to reduce risk with the aid of modern sonar devices. The detail and accuracy of these sonar devices can create safe working environments for divers prior to water entry by simply understanding what the area looks like prior to getting wet. These sonar systems provide high accuracy 2D and 3D sonar scans of underwater structure and provide environmental data in zero visibility water conditions. 

Our sonar surveys provide high resolution detailed images and video in any water conditions. The sonar services we offer include simple 2D data imagery and live video imagery through to more complex 3D point cloud data. Our sonar transducers can be attached to or deployed from small work vessels, attached to poles, tripods and,ROVs. Each sonar whatever the deployment method can be used for principle and general inspections, environmental and structural evaluations and real time underwater works monitoring.



UK Diving Services Utilise New Sonar Technology To Find Underwater Vehicles And Fixed Structures

Our new sonar technology uses live sonar imagery to find underwater sunken vehicles, vessels and many other lost assets. The sonar system allows constant monitoring of any underwater object from any angle and depth. This unique system provides high resolution sonar video with exceptional detail and accuracy for later viewing. The sonar is perfect for viewing fixed structures where the water quality and visibility is poor allowing for a comprehensive visual understanding of what is happening beneath the water surface. The sonar scans assets such as bridges and culverts, dock walls and pilings, piles and sheet pile walls, pontoons, aqueducts and viaducts. Deliverables are in the form of a video file and can be linked to GPS.

The surveys were to assess the condition of recent remedial works undertaken at each structure. Written reports were provided including detailed digital photography and video.

 Bridge Underwater Sonar And Diving Surveys - Transport Scotland

UK Diving Services Ltd recently undertook diving and sonar surveys on numerous underwater structures in Inverness in the Scottish Highlands, Scotland. The purpose of the inspection was to determine the extent of any scour if present. Due to the visual limitations in water using conventional video and still photography all our diving surveys are backed by underwater sonar giving stand off images for engineers to better understand the condition of their structures and to help implement remedial works. Sonar is now a complimentary service with all UK Diving Services underwater surveys.

Underwater Survey And Sonar 

For the third consecutive year UK Diving Services have provided underwater services on various Bridge assets throughout Scotland on behalf of Transport Scotland.  UKDS provided a full underwater scour and condition surveys of many of the bridge structures and concluded that urgent repairs were required to several of the structures. Some of the bridge structures exhibited deeper channel piers where sea bed levels had dropped and the supporting Hercules piles had become exposed.  Repairs were undertaken including concrete grouting and the placing of extensive rock armour. Rock is a good fundamental scour protection however by protecting one pier generally tends to pass the scour problem to the next adjacent unprotected pier. We have now introduced sonar backed diving surveys for monitoring a structure's scour protection.
