The Future Of Green Technical Diving
Motor ships have been roaming the seas ever since the invention of the steam engine in the eighteenths century. The international merchant shipping is responsible for the production of more than a million tons of CO2 every year. This corresponds, depending on interpretation, to the equivalent of 3 to 4.5 % of the global production of CO2. The percentage of ships running on heavy fuel oil is 90 % nowadays. A large cruise ship emits the same amount of pollutants as five million cars, traveled over the same distance.
“Two tons of carbon dioxide per head and year – that is the guideline, to which we have to stick, if we want to secure the climate and environment for generations to come. In Germany, every person causes an average amount of 12.5 tons at present.” [Greenpeace]
One week spent of on board of a cruise ship causes an average of 5 tons of CO2 per person! Twice that amount is produced during a stay on one of the renowned and popular diving safari vessels, as they can be found in the Red Sea, for example. An additional ton of CO2 has to be added to this amount when considering the flights there and back again, resulting in a total of 11 tons of CO2 per person for a diving safari in the Red Sea. Therefore the yearly emission of carbon dioxide of 2 tons, which no one should exceed, is already reached after 2 (!) days.
With us you dive emission free! With emission-free propulsion and emission-free energy supply!
At full capacity we spare our environment 9 000 tons of CO2 each year. This corresponds to what 875 people in Europe currently overproduce each year. To compensate the same amount, 18 000 trees would have to be planted in Madagascar, for example.
That is Green Technical Diving
The Future of Deep Technical Diving
We do not make a secret of our passion. Diving locations beyond the “usual” depth do not seldomly afflict a stirring of attraction within us and often were the reason for our decision of becoming tec-divers. With the deep conviction, that every tec-diver himself can best determine where his limits lay – and just as much has to be able to do so – we strive to offer you the best possible service and support for your diving ventures.
No matter how deep, how long, how complicated or remote.
That is Deep Technical Diving
The Future of Safe Technical Diving
We strive to minimize risks where and whenever possible. A wreck just happens to lie as deep as it does on the ocean floor and a cave is as complicated as it happens to be formed. We cannot change that. What we can change however, are the conditions. Our mobile diving equipment, the stationary diving equipment with the mobile diving chamber on board the 2HE2, or the exploration equipment with our mobile diving robot, allow you to dive saver than ever – even in the most remote corners of the seas.
