Diving an Old Abandoned Power Plant

Diving underwater structures such s this abandoned power plant, while adventurous, is a very risky thing to do.

We have all kinds of diving certifications and prep classes to help keep us out of trouble. However, diving underwater structures presents a whole set of other problems that make these types of activities risky business.

A few of the risks involved that come to mind include entanglement, disorientation, structural collapse, shocking encounters as well as the often not thought of delta-p problem.

Having highlighted some of the more obvious risks, enjoy the following video of a first time diving exploration of an abandoned power plant.

While it looks like fun, be very careful of underwater structures and the possibility of encountering underwater water pressure differences (delta-p).

Don’t understand the danger of underwater structures and delta-p? See our previous post below where a diver gets sucked into an active power plant.
