safety – ever.
We are constantly raising the bar in the development of technical diving gear and being an innovative, pioneering company; making commercial diving an occupation that is safer and more efficient than ever before.

We are specialists in the field of commercial diving equipment and its component parts. We have extensive understanding of the industrial and technical requirements of diving equipment not only the requirements of IMCA and NORSOK, but also the practicalities of making equipment that works in the right way for you and your team.
At Safe Air Diving we employ existing technologies to develop and produce state-of-the art dive systems that are able to satisfy all national and international legislative requirements – without question.
We aim to save you and your client’s cost, but above all to make commercial diving safer.

In 2015 Hukkelberg entered into a collaboration with Safe Air Diving, to manufacture diving systems with uncompromising attention to quality, safety and design.
In the following years, rather than retrofitting diving equipment onto existing boats, Hukkelberg and Safe Air started integrating the diving systems into the design of the boat from the start. This has led to a shift in focus for the design and manufacturing of LDC’s – how to make the best, safest and most efficient workplace for divers & supervisors.
Over the last 25 years Hukkelberg Boats have delivered around 200 high speed work boats to the global offshore energy market. Most of these have been Fast Rescue Daughter Craft type vessels, used both as rescue vessels and for various work applications around offshore oil and gas installations. Through compliance to IMO/SOLAS mandated requirements like drop- and side impact testing, Hukkelberg has developed a rock solid hull design, built to withstand years of professional use.
Outside the oil and gas sector, notable owners of Hukkelberg boats include the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue, who currently owns and operates 15 Hukkelberg search and rescue vessels, the oldest having been in continuous service for 18 years. Due to the reliability and performance of these SAR vessels, the NSSR has decided to collaborate with Hukkelberg on an modernization program, where existing vessels are updated with new superstructures, drive lines and electronics, rather than replacing the entire vessels.
The Diving Craft:
With excellent seakeeping properties and rugged construction, the powerful and agile Hukkelberg boats have also proved to be extremely well suited for surface supplied diving operations, and several diving operators have over the years converted existing Hukkelberg Boats to diving vessels. In 2007 Hukkelberg made the first boat specifically designed for diving. It was fitted with a 2 diver AIR spread and became the first Hukkelberg LDC light diving craft.
Since then Hukkelberg has had a very close collaboration the diving industry. Gradually, we have developed our boat designs and made improvements based on experience and feedback from divers, supervisors and operators with hands on experience using Hukkelberg equipment.
The new Light diving Craft represents a decade of product development, experience and collaboration with the diving industry. Its proven track record and reliable performance under a wide range of conditions will make it an ideal tool to performing worldwide offshore diving operations.
