Our initial experience was gained in the 1990's in the extremes of the oil and gas fields off the North Sea and Timor Sea. Twenty five years on, our onshore reputation continues to grow as the mature, quiet achievers with a wealth of unrivalled experience in industrial maintenance. DBC innovate, integrate and deploy new technologies and systems in consultation with our clients. Lessons learnt across petrochemical, cement, water, energy, marine, steel and alumina industries have demonstrated that a synergistic approach with two or more different types of access in play is often the best all round solution.
