ex-HMAS Hobart Structural Integrity Assessment
Professional Diving Services completed a series of dives on the ex-HMAS Hobart, to assess the structural integrity of the wreck and determine its expected life span as a dive site.
Divers completed visual and non-destructive testing of the site including a corrosion potential and steel thickness survey of the wreck. The data collected during the diving inspections will also be reviewed by a naval architect to validate findings and contribute to the report.
“Working with PDS has been a very satisfying experience, your advice was very important in helping to plan the scope of the project, communication has been excellent throughout, and the commitment to safety in conducting the fieldwork gave me a lot of confidence. PDS’ team was by far the most organised and professional in the way they went about their work.” Department for Environment and Water SA.
