A single, triple-lock, saturation system diving chamber complex that can act as a dual 24-man HRF (12 and 12), fitted inside a support frame and supported by a combined HRF Saturation Control and Machinery module. The complex is designed such that both an HRC and an SPHL can be docked concurrently. In this way, two separate 12-man teams can be simultaneously supported in an emergency. The painted steel frame is used primarily for protection during transportation but also serves as the mounting platform for any type of SPHL support base. The support module (a combined saturation control and machinery area) is housed in a 20' ABS freight container. The HRF dive chamber is able to receive an SPHL, with a bottom mating trunk, via a custom TUP mating spool and clamp arrangement (not included in standard scope of supply) and/or receive an HRC via an end-mate (or even a side-mate) custom spool and clamp arrangement (not included in standard scope of supply).

Main Components:

1 x Triple-lock chamber (300m seawater depth; Twinlock; ASME VIII Div 1 and ABS design rules 2010; locks named Lock I, Lock II - 12-man capacity per lock, 6 bunks & 6 seats each and a TUP - wet-pot with 2 seats)

1 x Integral Chamber Support Frame (Built to ABS lifting standards and conforms dimensionally to ISO 6346:1995 as a Type 45GO size code - 40 foot High Cube Dry Container. The frame is fitted with external lighting for the chamber complex.)
