DTI has maintained a competitive position in the marine services industry since the companies formation in 1980.
DTI was originally founded to provide high quality underwater inspections, but quickly expanded to accommodate its
growing customer base. In the mid 1990’s, DTI had begun to specialize in the maintenance of water based utilities.
DTI has since grown into a full service commercial diving contractor with experience in a wide range of diving
applications from the simplest inspections to the most complex construction projects.
DTI has extensive experience in marine consturction: from installing pipelines, cables, and various types of scour
protection to working on large marine construction projects, including bridge construction, pile jacketing, and epoxy

DTI's underwater structural inspection services. Numerous power plants, port authorities, municipalities, and county
governments obtain underwater structural inspections of all types from DTI.
DTI specializes in the maintenance of power plant and phosphate mine facilities. Activities in this area include
cleaning trash racks and traveling water screens, debris and sediment removal, burning, welding, and non-destructive

We have worked on projects involving repairs and modifications to fuel handling systems, up enders, spent fuel pool
liners, and fuel handling cranes.
DTI supports research diving for NOAA, and other oceanographic engineering firms, and government agencies. Our company
has been contracted on many research projects, including the deploying, the maintaining and the retrieving of the
instruments used to measure currents, wind speed, and water temperature in the Gulf of Mexico and in Tampa Bay
(Physical Oceanographic Real Time Survey).
Some of our specialized equipment and systems include: NDT ultrasonic thickness testing equipment, digital depth
