ARA Marine is a leader in hyperbaric services. We provide breathing air sample analysis, hydrostatic testing, and certification, as well as hire breathing apparatus and cylinders.

For hyperbaric services, ARA Marine recognises that a reliable and fast turnaround servicing time is critical for our customers. Renowned for our prompt and efficient service, ARA Marine provides customised solutions for each client’s requirements, including service scheduling.

Servicing is completed to the current standards and regulations as governed by national authority safety regulations, flag state, classification society or OEM requirements. ARA Marine is also an approved hyperbaric repairer with the Australian Department of Defence.

As with fire appliances, there are certain elements which cannot be completed in-situ due to the level and sensitivity of test equipment required. In many of these cases, recertification can be carried out by our on-site team. If equipment must be sent to one of our facilities for service or repair, ARA Marine can provide substitute equipment for short or long-term hire to cover the site/vessel’s safety responsibilities.

ARA Marine aims to deliver the highest quality breathing apparatus products and services available, exceeding the demands of the most safety conscious customer.
