Inspired by the potential to increase safety and efficiency of highly complex subsea repairs and maintenance Otech Marine Services was founded by Odd Tveit, in 2005. After more than 30 years experience in the diving industry, his vision was to develop a world leading company suited to handle advanced repair and maintenance operations for the oil & gas industry at shallow depths with the highest level of safety. His son, Odd Are Tveit, is now the CEO of the company and continue to lead it with a main focus on safety, people and innovation.
Otech Marine Services provides a high standard competitive choice for quick response, inspections, repair and routine maintenance for different diving operations. Otech has extensive experience with rapid ship repairs, maintenance works and routine operations. All operations are planned and documented with the highest level of safety, monitoring and quality.
From time to time there are cases where there are no existing methods in which to solve maintenance or repairs subsea. Norwegian companies has for years been in the top of the industry solving subsea challenges with innovative and effective solutions. As a Norwegian company we continue this tradition, and develop specially engineered solutions to suit our customers.
The use of cofferdams and habitats has been commonly used to perform works situated under the waterline where you require dry conditions. Such solutions form a good alternative to dry-docking when maintenance and urgent repairs are required. Otech has developed various solutions to ensure dry conditions for performing work or simply as water integrity barriers. In common for all our solutions is innovation and smart engineering including easy installation, easy transport, increased safety and documentation.

Cathodic protection (CP) retrofit
A fully functional cathodic protection system is vital for protecting the submerged structure of any installation. An ICCP system provides a maintenance free solution for up to 20 years. This will reduces costs for the owner by not having to replace submerged sacrificial anodes during any port calls or periodic surveys. Otech offer solutions for retrofit by converting any traditional sacrificial system or outdated ICCP system, giving our customers a ICCP system designed for the future which is guaranteed to make an impact on maintenance costs.
