American Marine Corporation has been providing diving services to the marine industry since 1973, and is currently serving a wide variety of public and private sector clients in all three of our operating regions.
Our operating regions include Hawaii and the outer Pacific Islands, the West Coast of the United States, Alaska, the Gulf and East Coasts, Central America, and several international areas.
We conduct operations globally to meet our client’s demands.
Our capabilities include air diving to 190 feet, mixed gas diving to 300 feet, diving in Arctic Conditions & extreme tidal conditions, and supply and operation of remotely operated vehicles (ROV).
As Alaska’s premier Arctic diving specialists, AMC provides the following services:
Search & Recovery Operations
Emergency Services such as Salvage operations to recover a sunk vessel, barge, or one that ran aground on land, remove oil pollution and clean the oil pollution on the water that resulted in the vessel damage, fire fighting on a vessel to prevent the vessel from sinking, recover items that sunk in ocean or lakes, utilize divers and remotely operated vehicles (ROV) to perform an inspection, search and recovery of the asset.
Underwater Cofferdam Construction and Installation
Install cofferdams in the water to allow for construction companies to dewater the area of work and perform the work in the dry versus having to do the construction underwater.
Hull Inspection and Repair
Inspect Vessel’s Hull for damage or periodic inspections per Coast Guard and American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) regulations. This requires specific qualifications from ABS if the vessel is an ABS classed vessel. Repair damage from running around, hitting an object, vessel failure, etc.
Non-Destructive Testing (NDT)
Non-Destructive Testing is a certified and specific qualification that allows us to perform testing on structural and material components without damaging those components. A great example is performing Ultrasonic Testing of an oil platform leg to ensure the steel is in good condition and not compromised. We perform NDT on subsea pipelines, marine structures like platforms, ports, marinas, and docks. We perform a wide variety of tests, including but not limited to Thickness Readings, Magnetic Particle Inspection (MPI), Flooded member tests, eddy-current testing, and ultrasonic.
Offshore Moorings and Platforms
We install, inspect, and repair Offshore moorings and platforms. This can be a wide range of services with very in-depth procedures to comply with Regulatory codes and standards. Some moorings we have worked on are single and multi-point moorings for tankers to offload or load products.
- Subsea Pipeline Installation and Repair
- Subsea Cable Installation and Repair
- Marine Outfall Inspection and Repair
These three services are all similar. They involve installing subsea components. We install pipelines that carry all sorts of products from crude oil, refined products, natural gas, and more. We install subsea cables such as power cables and fiber optic communication cables. We install outfalls that deliver a waste product offshore and deposit the material far from the beach/shoreline. We perform these services all over the world and in some of the most extreme in the Arctic. This requires local knowledge and top performance to ensure everything goes smoothly in these harsh environments.
We provide a wide variety of marine construction support. This involves commercial diving, crew vessels to transfer personnel and cargo, barges, cranes, tug boats for towing services, project management, welding and fabrication services, and more.
Underwater Video and Photographic Inspection
Wide variety of underwater video and photo inspections on waterfront facilities, pilings, piers, subsea pipelines, vessels, barges, offshore platforms, docks, etc.
Scour Inspection and Repair
We perform annual scour inspection and repairs. Scour occurs when environmental factors such as tidal currents, surf, winds, etc. create subsea assets that interface with the seafloor. Over time the environmental factors create instability and no support for the subsea assets. This eventually can lead to damage of the structures due to insufficient support and protection.
Perform repair and maintenance services on Dam’s involving a wide variety of services such as underwater gate repair or replace, steel and concrete repair and/or replacement, intake and outfall subsea infrastructure inspection and maintenance.
Epoxy Injection and Pile Encapsulation
This involves piling inspection, and if deemed necessary by engineering, we will install pile jackets that come in many types and installation methods. The Jackets are typically installed around a degraded area of the piling. Then the jacket is filled with an underwater pump grout/marine epoxy that adds strength and integrity to the repair.
