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.
