Our Diver Launch and Recovery Systems has been specifically designed to give a compact operating footprint to minimise the deck space required on board a vessel or barge. Emphasis has been placed on ease of mobilisation and demobilisation, so that operational costs are kept to a minimum.

The Diver Launch and Recovery Systems folds down in order that it fits into a standard ISO 20’ shipping container, thus expensive shipping costs for out of gauge size goods are avoided. This also allows for safe storage and protection of the Launch and Recovery System from the elements during periods when the equipment is not required operationally.

IMCA Announces Guidance on Hyperbaric Reception Facility

The safety of divers in saturation is of paramount importance. With this in mind, the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) – Booth S18 at OTC 2014 – has published ‘Diving Equipment Systems Inspection Guidance Note (DESIGN) for the hyperbaric reception facility (HRF) forming part of a hyperbaric evacuation system (HES)’ (IMCA D 053).
IMCA Announces Guidance on Hyperbaric Reception Facility

“D 053 should always be used in conjunction with IMCA D 018 ‘Code of practice on the initial and periodic examination, testing and certification of diving plant and equipment’,” explains IMCA’s Technical Director, Jane Bugler. “Indeed, cross references to this Code are provided where appropriate.

“Our new document addresses the provision of an HRF as part of an HES as utilised within the offshore diving industry, and aims to provide a comprehensive reference source, addressing the philosophy of what equipment and layout is required for an HRF, plus the examination, test and certification requirements necessary to meet agreed industry practice.

“This will apply anywhere in the world (i.e. outside the territorial waters of most countries or inside territorial waters where offshore diving, normally in support of the oil and gas or renewable energy industries is being carried out).”

The newly published document offers examples of good practice. It gives advice on aspects of an HRF that can be configured in certain ways in order to provide a safer system of working. It also identifies how inspection and testing can be carried out safely and efficiently.

The document has no direct legal status, but many courts, in the absence of specific local regulations, would accept that a company carrying out diving operations in line with the recommendations of IMCA D 053 was using safe and accepted practices.

Original Press Release from Subsea World News

Commercial Diver Training Limited opens in St Austell, Cornwall

A new Commercial Diver Training Centre has opened in England. Commercial Diver Training Limited is based in St Austell, Cornwall and is run and operated by George Gradon and Warren Salliss. For more information on the courses available please visit their website: – www.commercialdivertraining.co.uk

After over three years of development, Commercial Diver Training Ltd has successfully achieved accreditation from the health and safety executive (HSE) to conduct all levels of commercial air diver training, from marine biologists to offshore oil rig and wind farm divers.
CDT - Commercial Diver Training

CDT is the only facility in England and Wales to offer such training, and the only school globally to accommodate students aboard a fully operational dive vessel.

The individuals behind the school, George Gradon and Warren Salliss, already operate a Cornish based inshore construction diving company and undertake subsea operations for the North Sea offshore oil and gas producers.

“All too often the newly trained guys entering industry are completely under prepared for the challenges ahead of them. This is a widely held view both inshore and offshore. We felt a change was long overdue, hence we formed CDT,” says Gradon.

“Our team has been selected from personnel who still work in the real world. Over 75 years of diving experience has gone into the make-up of our programmes. Our facilities are purpose built and ultra high spec, as is our approach to training.”

“We are working divers, who train divers to work” seems to be the CDT motto.

Whilst commercial diver training is expensive (upwards of £1000/week for 4-9 weeks courses) the earning potential for CDT graduates is between £150-£600/day.
