SMP Experiencing High Demand for Commercial Diving Equipment

SMP are currently experiencing exceptionally high demand for commercial diving equipment.  In particular we are fielding lots of enquiries from commercial diving contractors looking to purchase complete air diving systems as they bid for commercial diving contracts.  This is positive news for the commercial diving industry after the recent slump over the last couple of years.

As a manufacturer of commercial diving equipment with over 30 years experience in the diving industry whose products include containerised diving systems, saturation diving systems, diver decompression chambers, diver launch and recovery systems, hot water machines and surface supplied diving panels, SMP are well placed to supply this increased demand.

Commercial Diving Equipment Manufacturer and Supplier in UK by SMP

In addition to manufactured diving equipment, SMP are also suppliers of leading brand name commercial diving equipment including Kirby Morgan diving helmets, bandmasks and full face masks, Coltri breathing air compressors, Subsalve lifting bags, Amron diving equipment including diver communications equipment, Bowtech Camera Systems, Birns underwater lighting, Stanley hydraulic tools, Cortland diving umbilicals, UMC hull cleaning equipment, Broco cutting and welding equipment and much more.

We have also improved our shipping services meaning that we are now able to reliably supply equipment much faster at reduced shipping rates to any location throughout the world.  This is a major advantage for customers who need equipment delivered ASAP in order to minimise any disruption to costly commercial diving operations.

Whatever your diving equipment needs, SMP can deliver on-time, on-budget with a superior range of diving products offering exceptional value for money.  Contact our UK sales team on +44 (0)1772 687775.  Alternatively you can email sales@smp-ltd.co.uk.

Saturation Diving System Undergoing Sea Trials

SMP have manufactured a compact saturation diving system which has now been installed onto the vessel.  The system is currently undergoing sea trials over the next 4 weeks.  During this time the saturation diving system will be thoroughly tested before the system is fully commissioned.

The saturation diving system is rated to 300 metres and is Lloyds approved and also meets IMCA D 024 (DESIGN for Saturation Diving Systems).

Below is a selection of photos taken onboard the vessel which show the complete saturation diving system undergoing sea trials.

The project has taken 2 years from the initial 3D design inception from our team of experienced CAD engineers, skilled manufacturing from our dive technician engineers and onsite installation.

Ray: A Life Underwater

An amazing video documentary based on the life and commercial diving career of 75 year old commercial diver Ray Ives

The video cannot be shown at the moment. Please try again later.

A rogue with an eye for salvage – and the ladies – Ray: A Life Underwater is an affectionate portrait of one man’s deep sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artefacts.

Like a modern-day pirate, 75–year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life.

The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered — even gold.

In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes and diving gear.

He still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit.
