In 2015 BlueZone Group was created when ATSA Defence Services and UVS were merged. ATSA Defence Services was founded in 2000 as the In-Service Support partner for Saab’s Double Eagle Mine Disposal System operated from the HUON Class Minehunter Costal ships by the Royal Australian Navy. UVS was founded in 1973 as a supplier of quality subsea equipment and services to the Offshore Oil & Gas, Defence, Oceanographic, Hydrographic, Diving and Water Utility market sectors.
The focus of BlueZone is the application of world-leading technology to enable operations, science, maintenance and repair to be conducted in underwater or water-based environments. BlueZone brings knowledge and understanding of technology that can be shared with customers in varied markets. By working with customers ranging from science applications in the deep oceans to water infrastructure in busy cites, BlueZone can leverage the latest ideas and innovations from one market to another. Where the Group has several complementary capabilities, it can also combine these to offer broader solutions.
