This Winter Talk will be presented by Brian McAllister, who has been involved in the diving and marine business since 1975 working in the oil, gas and salvage business principally as a diver. He has worked world-wide as an air diver/surface mixed gas diver/saturation bell diver and diver technician and 1 atmospheric submersible pilot. He assisted in the early 1980’s in the saturation exploration dives on the Lusitania. Brian was diving supervisor on the largest ever salvage project ever undertaken on the raising and removal of the 120,000 tonne cruise liner, Costa Concordia, off the coast of Italy. Brian is now coming back to Ireland with his expertise to enter the Dive Tech industry, servicing and repairing SCUBA and commercial diving equipment.
