The ABS 300HFS-09 saturation diving system is an ABS Classed 9 man system that offers flexibility through a modular design philosophy which offers uncomplicated capacity for further systems upgrade. The design focuses on a compact approach for ease of shipping, rapid mobilisation and reduced deck-footprint all of which is delivered and assembled as a turnkey solution.
The chamber system consists of separate twin and a single lock chambers. The twin lock chamber includes a living area fitted out for 6 divers and a wet-pot facility which serves as a TUP to the 3 man diving bell. The single lock chamber includes two 3 person living locks where one serves as a dedicated come out chamber with a partitioned sanitary facility which is linked to the SPHL. All of the SAT and dive machinery for the system is fitted into two 20ft ISO containers as well as SAT and dive control rooms.
The ABS 300HFS-09 is easily configured and deployed on board medium to large DSVs dependent on the saturation work scope. The system layout could be configured for either moon pool or over-the-side bell deployment. The SPHL is deployed directly over the side of the vessel making for simple SPHL integration with the system.
