MCD staff have over 15 years of experience conducting In-Water Surveys (IWS) and UnderWater Inspections in Lieu of Dry-docking (UWILD) of ships for major Classification Societies (DNVGL, NK, BV, LR, ABS and RINA).
Due to the feedback accumulated during these years, and now with their own company, MCD managers are committed to continuous improvement and evolution to adapt to current and changing circumstances.
One of the advances has been the implementation of remote diving inspections by streaming live CCTV signal from the auxiliary boat to the dock (or anywhere). This system optimizes underwater vessel inspections and guarantees the safety of our workers and external personnel involved (surveyor, superintendent, etc.) through social distancing measures.
MCD is approved as service supplier to carry out In-water surveys on ships and mobile offshore units by:
- Det Norske Veritas-Germanischer Lloyd (DNVGL)
- Bureau Veritas (BV)
- Lloyd’s Register (LR)
MCD is currently in an advanced stage of the certification process with other Class Societies:
- Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (NKK)
- American Bureau of Shipping (ABS)
MCD also offers different underwater maintenance and repair services of vessels afloat like:
- Propeller polishing
- Sea-chest cleaning
- Anodes installation
- Underwater welding / cutting
- Echo sounders and speed logs replacement
- Small repairs afloat
MCD underwater services of vessels cover main ports of northern Spain:

MCD can attend any other port in Spain thanks to the fully equipped dive support mobile unit with trailer for the auxiliary boat.
