Afonso Group was formed in 1969 as a commercial diving outfit and, although the company has diversified its operations, diving continues as an important division within the company. The diving division provides a full range of services, from vessel repair and maintenance to challenging offshore-related assignments, with an emphasis on safe and environmentally responsible operations.
The professional diving team at Afonso Group is well-versed in modern diving technology and techniques, and uses the latest equipment available.
Afonso Group is focused on delivering high-quality work at competitive rates, and specializes in offering innovative solutions to difficult challenges. We have performed work for the Government of Canada (including Canadian Coast Guard, Public Works, Fisheries and Oceans, and Royal Canadian Mounted Police), Government of Newfoundland and Labrador (including Works, Services and Transportation, and Municipal and Public Affairs), Newfoundland and Labrador Hydro, Churchill Falls Labrador Corporation and Newfoundland Power, as well as more than 300 smaller contractors and vessel owners. Long term contractual agreements are in place with major players in the inshore marine industry in Newfoundland and Labrador.
No matter what your diving challenge may be, Afonso Group will go to great depths to get the job done, safely and effectively.
