The Transportable Life Support Package (LSP) is for use in remote locations as a basic shore based reception facility to support the Self Propelled Hyperbaric Lifeboat (SPHL) or Hyperbaric Rescue Chamber (HRC) services after evacuation from the mother Vessel. The LSP can additionally be located offshore on a field supply vessel or other structure capable of handling both the SPHL / HRC in evacuation mode and the LSP as a reception facility, subject to the required support services being available for operational use of the LSP.

The LSP equipment is built into a 12ft x 8ft DNV Certified Offshore Container, which is utilised as a safe means of transport, storage and protection of the inbuilt equipment. The container is provided with 4 x certified top lift padeyes and certified lifting slings for handling purposes. In addition the base section of the container is provided with fully enclosed forklift pockets for transport loading purposes and dockside handling.

The primary concern when utilising the LSP other than as a means to monitor and control the chamber life support gases and chamber depth etc, is to provide cooling / dehumidification fluid services for connection to the SPHL Chamber / HRC existing Habitat Conditioning Units (HCU’s), especially in geographic areas where tropical conditions exist.

The heat & ensuing humidity generated by the HLB Chamber occupants, coupled with the high ambient temperatures experienced under tropical conditions can be significant.

The issue of heating the chamber internals is not considered in this proposal, as the occupants should be provided with the necessary survival packs containing thermal suits as part of the SPHL / HRC inventory, in order to comply with current IMCA requirements.

The container is fitted with an internal bulkhead, dividing the LSP into two specific fully insulated sections. As follows:

  • Life Support Section CW Life Support Control Panel and Air Conditioning Unit)
  • Machinery Section CW Air Cooled Liquid Chiller and HP Heliox Mixed Gas & Oxygen Gas Storage Section.

LSP General Fitout
The unit is outfitted out with the following items of equipment:

  • 6 x HP Oxygen Cylinders. For Oxygen Make-Up. Gas not included.

  • 440 Volt 3 Phase 50 or 60 Hz electrical Supply & distribution for the Chiller unit.
  • 220 Volt Single Phase Supply

  • Internal Connection points Via a Penetrator Plate within the LSP between the Life Support Control Section and Machinery Section for connection of the SPHL / HRC Emergency Fluid / Gas Service Umbilical. The umbilical remains stored inside the LSP permanently connected to the life support services.
