A state-of-the-art facility for wet- and dry-habitat welding training has been installed at the Oceaneering International, Inc. Siracusa Road location in Morgan City, Louisiana. Diver/welders using the site can be qualified at 40-foot water depths. The tank allows up to four divers to simulate underwater conditions for performing welding procedures used offshore during platform or ship repair operations to produce quality welds.
