Namaka Subsea, an Aberdeen based consulting company, have recently assisted Global Energy Group’s newly developed diving division Global Diving, in achieving membership as an International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) Offshore Diving Contractor.
Namaka Subsea provided support to Global Diving throughout the development of the new division and subsequent award of IMCA Offshore Diving Contractor membership. This included auditing the company Business Management System (BMS) in support of diving operations and providing recommendations. The audit ensured that the company has the capacity and capability in terms of its systems and controls in place to carry out diving operations as per current industry best practice, the company informed.
Furthermore, Global Diving purchased DiveCert which is software package developed by Namaka Subsea. DiveCert has been designed for the diving industry to ensure testing and maintenance of diving equipment can be carried out to comply with IMCA guidance and global diving standards.
Global Diving’s Offshore Diving Manager, Alan Melia, said: “To help Global Diving comply with IMCA requirements for tracking certification we purchased DiveCert and have successfully incorporated this into our system. In addition Namaka Subsea also carried out an independent pre IMCA audit on our processes which provided a gap analysis and ensured any recommendations were implemented prior to the IMCA membership audit. With this in place Global Diving was in a more comfortable and confident position for the audit. The pre audit report has also proved useful in presenting to blue chip clients and has helped client audits to be carried out more efficiently.”
Sandy Harper, Managing Director of Namaka Subsea, added: “We are delighted to have assisted Global Diving in achieving their IMCA Offshore Diving Contractor membership and would like to take this opportunity to congratulate them. It is a tremendous achievement and it is clear from their level of determination and commitment that they intend to become well established within the industry as an offshore diving contractor.”
