NEW PRODUCTS: Wet Bell Launch And Recovery Systems (LARS)

Status

NEW PRODUCTS!!
WET BELL LAUNCH AND RECOVERY SYSTEMS (LARS)

We are pleased to announce the introduction to the market of two new products.

1. Wet Bell Launch And Recovery System With Control Cabin & Mixed Gas Panel
2. Wet Bell Launch And Recovery System

Our Launch And Recovery System (LARS) products have been designed and developed in-house and will be manufactured at our factory in the UK. As with all SMP products, we only use premium materials and highly skilled personnel to enable us to build the best quality final product for our customers.

The SMP Wet Bell LARS is designed within a compact operating footprint to minimise the required operational deck space on board a vessel or barge. Emphasis has been placed on ease of mobilisation and demobilisation, so that costs are kept to a minimum.

The Wet Bell LARS is IMCA D023 and D018 compliant and has Third Party Design approval to Lloyds Rules for Lifting Appliances in a Marine Environment.

When fully retracted by the hydraulic cylinders, with the wet bell and clump weight stowed on the heavy duty based skid, the size and dimensions of the Wet Bell System is comparable in width to an ISO 20’ container, but is approximately 2.0 meters shorter. The heavy duty based skid has ISO corner castings situated on each corner so that the system can be located on conventional twist locks with 6 additional welded deck fastening points for the attachment of bolted sacrificial deck fixing plates, which are provided with each system.

The Wet Bell has a transparent top acrylic dome for 360 degree visibility during diver transit to depth. The Wet Bell can be supplied as a 2 or 3 diver unit to suit the customer’s operational requirements.

The Wet Bell System is outfitted with two manriding hydraulic winches for deployment and recovery of the Wet Bell and Clump Weight during normal operation. The clump weight winch can recover the Wet Bell in an emergency situation.

The two 30kW independent hydraulic power units (HPU) are sized to ensure the units are never running at full load conditions, thus extending the life of the HPU. The units are outfitted with premium sized oil reservoirs for safe operation in higher ambient temperatures, with seawater oil coolers fitted as standard. The hydraulic interconnecting piping and fittings from the HPU to the winches and hydraulic cylinders are all 316 Stainless Steel.

The hydraulic cylinders are of heavy duty construction with Stainless Steel cylinder rods fully chrome plated. The cylinders are fitted with counterbalance valves for safety during operation in the event of pressure loss at the cylinder or piping.

With every unit sold you can be sure of SMP’s full technical support, from our team of highly experienced designers, engineers and technicians.

Transfer Under Pressure (TUP) Diving System

We are offering for sale a Transfer Under Pressure (TUP) Diving System.
The TUP Diving System is a Closed Bell Diving System, designed and manufactured by SMP Ltd.

It is certified in accordance with International Maritime Contractors Association (IMCA) guidelines and codes of practice for offshore diving operations and certified by Lloyds Register of Shipping.


This compact modular system consists of a 3 man 4.7m3 saturation diving bell, diver’s gas control panels (air/mixed gas), main Bell/Diver control panel, twin lock decompression chamber, single lock decompression chamber (optional), HP and LP compressors, gantry launch and recovery system.

The system is equipped for air diving and mixed gas diving and the clump weight also incorporates a tool basket for the divers. A hyperbaric floataway chamber is optional.

The Diving System is a mobile and modular system that can be mobilised on a DPII support vessel, platform, rig or construction barge. The system is designed for moonpool or over the side operations. Using Trimix or Nitrox gas mixtures will allow longer duration in-water bottom time at greater depths than using air diving techniques which cause longer in-water and decompression practices.

By providing a closed bell system the divers are transferred in a protected environment. Safety is increased by removing the threat of Nitrogen intoxication. This is achieved by making sure at no point is the diver exposed to atmospheric pressure during decompression.

The benefits are clear to see and it is the way forward in today’s demanding market for deep air diving operations and continual surface mixed gas operations.

Safe No surface decompression interval, protected transfer to and from the splashzone
Proven An enhanced proven solution that increases workable bottom time
Future Proof Upgradeable to Saturation Diving Capability (Future Proof Capability)
Cost Effective The system provides cost effectiveness through increased bottom times for the divers
Mobile This modular system can be easily transported and mobilised in 24 hours providing fast turnaround for offshore operations on any suitable vessel

There is also the capability for one dive team to be in decompression whilst a second dive team commence diving operations which means less down time on jobs.

IMCA Publishes Safety Rep Handbook

The International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) has published a new tool for the industry – the ‘Safety Committee Representative’s Handbook’ (IMCA SEL 035), for use by safety committees on board vessels undertaking marine operations, recognised by IMCA as an excellent way of promoting and managing safety issues.

The handy wire bound A5 handbook is international in scope, and is written in straightforward and simple language. As well as providing guidance and information on a range of safety related topics it also covers the ‘nuts and bolts’ of how a safety committee works including:

• The function, remit and structure of safety committees
• How they affect welfare and the working environment
• Where safety representatives can find further information.

There is a chapter on some of the fundamental safety processes that are of importance to offshore personnel including risk assessment, safe systems of work, control of hazardous substances, manual handling, working at height and lifting operations.

It is now available for downloading free of charge for members and non-members alike at www.imca-int.com, and printed copies are available at £10 for members and £20 for non-members from publications@imca-int.com
