The Ballard Marine Construction Nuclear Team consists of individuals with extensive involvement on projects involving inspection, repair and modifications at facilities worldwide. Our ability to take on projects, from routine inspection to major capital improvements is accomplished by our experienced commercial divers and a variety of remote operated vehicles (ROV’s) that are supported by both on-site project managers and upper management with extensive experience with working under the compliance to the requirements of 10 CFR 50 Appendix B, N-QA1, ANSI N45.2

Ballard maintains strategically located regional offices to support North American power plants in addition to maintaining fly away dive/construction support packages for both planned and emergent projects.

We have a proven track record of inside and outside plant maintenance services. From heavy marine construction to on-call dive services we have the ability to provide industry standard and above service to our clients.
