Tritonia Scientific Ltd

Tritonia Scientific Ltd., is a diving and underwater research company that has evolved from the UK’s National Facility for Scientific Diving (NFSD).  It is based at the Dunstaffnage Marine Laboratories, near Oban in Argyll.  In addition to HSE-compliant dive teams, Tritonia Scientific also owns MCA-coded diving vessels, and maintains the Oban NHS-registered emergency recompression facility.

The company is applying a range of underwater techniques and technologies in support of many commercial and advanced scientific operations.  Most of the work uses diving to generate the results, but Tritonia also owns an ROV and aerial drone, and uses theses to undertake intertidal and supratidal surveys. The company owns and manages the Scottish Underwater Photogrammetry Unit.

Tritonia Scientific is a limited company registered in Scotland (SC587673), is VAT registered (GB 291 2942 89), and is a registered HSE Diving Contractor (4549034).
