Advanced Subsea Services Ltd. is western Canada's most innovative and resourceful commercial diving, personnel and R.O.V. supply company. In our commitment to meeting our clients' needs, we are dedicated to the highest standards of technical proficiency, marine safety, environmental awareness and professionalism.

We provide a range of services to the civil and offshore marine industries, including vessel maintenance, security inspections, oil and gas platform support, pipeline and submarine cable lay support and protection, trenching, subsea construction, coded wet welding, marine salvage, shoreline and structure erosion control and protection.

Our diving capabilities include surface-supplied, air-mixed gas, and saturation diving services. All operations are managed and controlled from mobile control centres in trailers or containers, which can be moved quickly on-site or loaded on to a barge or support vessel.

For inspections and ROV work, we own or have quick access to inspection-class ROVs (Remotely Operated Vehicles) such as the SEAEYE Falcon, with digital video, sonar and manipulator. Acting as an agent, we can source work-class ROV systems. Other marine resources include tug, barge and crane services and work boats.

Advanced Subsea also offers project management services. We work closely with project planners and engineers to incorporate standardized operating, monitoring and reporting procedures and to work out the logistics of project implementation. Our experience has given us a keen awareness of safety and environmental issues in a marine environment. We also work closely with regulatory agencies and stakeholders to ensure smooth and efficient production.

Advanced Subsea's global experience comes from working offshore in such diverse environments as Hibernia, Sable Island, Russia, the Caspian Sea, China, India, Japan, Thailand, Indonesia, the Straits of Malacca and the South China Sea.

Advanced Subsea Services is very much attuned to the rapidly evolving fields of ocean science and technology. Our mission is to offer the highest level of proficiency, service and support to our clients, as they pursue opportunities and deal with challenges encountered in a subsea environment.
