Throughout the various Covid-19 pandemic evolutions, Underwater Construction Corporation (UCC) and its subsidiaries kept commercial diving services fully operational. UCC safely supported its domestic and international customers while keeping their employees informed and safe. UCC continues to monitor the government guidelines throughout the world wherever they operate.
During Covid-19, some of UCC’s customers delayed commercial diving services; still, the majority continued with their planned underwater construction projects, and UCC has been proud to support them throughout the pandemic.
UCC’s Vice President of the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Regions – Philip McDermott – stated, “The first two months of 2022 have been tremendously busy wherein we have begun or completed more than 110 commercial diving projects, both here in the United States and internationally.”
Specifically, in the first seven weeks of 2022, UCC has begun or completed 58 underwater commercial diving projects, including a significant, long-term river crossing project in our southern region, as well as 28 nuclear diving projects and more than 25 hydro, fossil, and underwater mineral processing projects.
Mr. McDermott continued, “2022 and 2023 are projected to be two of the busiest years in recent memory. UCC is excited to add divers to our 230+ person company with the offer of travel, competitive pay, excellent benefits, and ample advancement opportunities. All UCC offices are currently hiring commercial divers, underwater power plant welders, and carbon fiber wrap personnel to support our expanding customer base.”
