Global Achieves 10,000 Dives on a Single Project


SEATTLE, WA– October17, 2016 – Global Diving & Salvage, Inc. has surpassed a major industry milestone; performing 10,000 successful dives on a single project at Olmsted Locks & Dam in Illinois. Tom Cameron, a long-time diver with Global, performed the 10,000thdive.

Wade Miller, Marine Construction Manager with AECOM for the Olmsted Dam Project, said, “The Global team has done an exceptional job. This accomplishment is such a strong statement regarding their professionalism and commitment to performing their work safely.”

Global has been working at Olmsted since 2009 providing a variety of dive-related services. Olmsted is a significant, ongoing undertaking. The new locks and dam system will replace two outdated locks and dam systems on the Ohio River, greatly reducing tow and barge delays through one of the busiest US inland waterways. Thousands of man hours put in by the United States Army Corps of Engineers (USACE), AECOM, and Global constitute essential work toward the completion of this enterprise; one that will span a quarter of a century and provide efficient passage up and down the Ohio River.

“This is a monumental achievement for everyone involved,” said John Graham, Director at Global. “This milestone demonstrates our diligence and commitment to safety in carrying out all of our operations; from a simple tug survey to a long-term project such as this.”
