K&C Diving stands for high-quality work with respect for the safety of all those involved and for the environment.
All works are carried out in accordance with the highest standards in the industry.
The Coating Division of the diving company protects underwater and above-surface infrastructure from corrosion, leakage and damage with high-quality coatings.
In addition, K&C Diving is the only diving company in Europe to possess the required certificates for the use of pyrotechnical cartridges for underwater demolition. Concrete and rock formations are easier to break thanks to this shock and sound absorbing technique.
The divers from K&C Diving are also tasked with the following:
The site supervisor and 30 divers at K&C Diving have years of experience in the development and implementation of efficient solutions. They are renowned for their expert approach, even in technically complex projects. After dozens of successful projects for port and waterway infrastructure, K&C Diving’s expertise is widely recognised.
The diving company is also creating waves in underwater construction/civil engineering. Almost any work you can imagine above the waterline can be carried out by K&C Diving below the waterline. The company provides diving services for the new construction of underwater structures, or maintenance of existing structures.
The K&C Diving consultancy department can offer a wealth of advice for those needing help with the realisation of underwater projects. With K&C Construct, the diving company can also offer an in-house steel department. This department designs and supplies customised solutions for maritime engineering assignments, and can also carry out welding, flame cutting and assembly works on site.
Dirk De Clerck - Operational Director at Herbosch-Kiere
In 2012, when I still worked for my previous employer, I was looking for a diving company with a proactive approach. I came across K&C Diving. During our first project together, Graandok, we encountered a series of unforeseen issues. K&C Diving dealt with these challenges in a very professional manner.
I have been working with them closely ever since. K&C Diving is a reliable partner without pretentions: from planning right up to invoicing, everything is always in order. Their courage to anticipate is their strength. For this reason, we always involve them in the preparation of any work. K&C Diving is a hands-on diving company that has a no-nonsense attitude and knows the value of collaboration.
Herbosch-Kiere is specialised in port, river and maritime work. This includes the demolition and construction of quay walls, bridges, locks/floodgates, piers/jetties, and dredging and salvage operations.
Tom Van Autgaerden - Maritime Infrastructure Manager at the Antwerp Port Authority
K&C Diving and the ‘Antwerp Port Authority’ have a long history together. A collaboration that reflects flexibility. Agreements are always kept and we can even count on them during the weekends. Sometimes unexpected situations arise during assignments such as mending holes in sheet pile walls.
K&C Diving always responds in an inventive and professional manner in case of emergencies. They also correctly communicate the financial implications of unforeseen circumstances at all times, which is reassuring and creates trust. When I look at any printed material, I can see that the quality of the underwater work is excellent: everything is always immaculate and in order. We are definitely a satisfied customer!
The Maritime Infrastructure department at the Antwerp Port Authority manages and maintains the docks, bridges, locks/floodgates, quay walls and grounds around the port area. It is also responsible for smooth and safe shipping traffic in the Antwerp port area.
