Underwater services also include Broco cutting.

Broco cutting

Broco exothermic cutting rod burns at extreme temperatures and is capable of cutting through any known material on earth. This underwater cutting rod is hot enough to melt almost anything. Divers at SMADS use this cutting technique for welding and cutting of steel piles, sheet piles, mooring chains, vessel salvage, and many other underwater steel cutting and removal.

Because of its effectiveness and proven performance Broco cutting is considered standard even for navy use.

With a strong focus on safety and quality, we ensure that all wet welding operations are conducted in accordance with strict protocols, guaranteeing the well-being of our divers and the successful completion of every project.
