Our Story

Ingmar is a highly experienced diver that holds an ADAS Part 3, 3.2u

Inspection qualification, and saw a need for such a solution as early as 2016.

He has well over 9 years of extensive hands on subsea experience, mostly working on the East Coast of Australia and offshore in Europe. In Europe he got exposed to ROV work and decided to retrain for this skill set. In 2007 Ingmar completed his degree in Marine Science and decided to top it of with a Masters degree in Environmental Studies in 2010.

K ROV started in Townsville and after initial successes it became clear that our clients wanted us to relocate our services to a bigger port. Not forgetting our roots, we still offer our service there and we picked up some more locations along the coast on our way down.

As we are always trying to fulfill our customers wishes we relocated to the biggest port we could find In Queensland and moved our operations to Brisbane.

There Jay joined our team full time and things have never been the same, always on top of any maintenance and meticulous in anything he does he was a boon to the K ROV operations as well as ensuring the maintenance of KW Dive equipment being up to scratch.

Once in Brisbane it became apparent that our clients wanted us to service all of their in-water needs, not only the cleaning of their hulls.

Hence, we teamed up with Nigel to form KW Dive which allowed us to offer a ONE-STOP-SOLUTION for all subsea needs for international vessels in Brisbane, no matter what the work scope may be. With the team being highly mobile, it can be dispatched all along the East Coast without too much hassle.

The protection of the world’s oceans is a driving factor for everyone involved in these ventures. Their dedication and commitment to preserving the environment, while providing safe and inexpensive solutions. This is what drives both teams K ROV and KW Dive forward.

What we have to offer

K ROV as well as KW Dive do their best ensure they job will be completely on time and on budget. In 4 years of operation we have only had to abort a single operation on the grounds of unexpected weather shutting down the work site. Whilst schedules are important the health and safety of our crew as well as our clients crew are always paramount. As a result of these simply paradigms on which we operate we have not had single customer who would not receive the service we quoted. This means a reliable service for our customers when it comes to reducing their fuel bills s well as complying with the Biosecurity guidelines of their next port of call.
