Unique Hydra Gears Up to Launch its Diving Daughtercraft System at the IMCA Annual Seminar 2014
By: Unique Maritime Group
The IMCA Annual Seminar is conducted every year for professionals at the forefront of the marine contracting industry. The seminar includes an array of presentations given by specialists on technical, safety and environmental issues affecting the industry. This year’s programme focuses on the initiatives being employed to improve performance across various technical divisions such as Marine, Diving, Offshore Survey and Remote Systems & ROV.
During the event, Unique Hydra will be focusing on a range of its diving products that include the classed containerized air dive systems, the eDMS 100 (Electronic Dive & Chamber Monitoring System), Launch & Recovery Systems, DSV Saturation Diving Systems and the HYDRACraft Daughter Craft system.
However, the major highlight of our participation will be the launch of the HYDRACraft Diving Daughtercraft System. The daughter craft system is designed for conducting diving operations in locations that are not accessible by larger DSVs or for underwater weld inspections. The craft is deployed off a mother vessel. A decompression chamber is positioned on the mother vessel to support the diving operation. The vessels are 14m or 15m long and are purpose designed for diving operations, i.e., stability over speed and endurance. The boat has an aft diving deck where the diver is dressed and enters the water using a 2m single spine ladder deployed at the aft. There is a 350kg A-frame davit that is fitted to the aft of the vessel to be used to recover an injured diver.
On account of Unique Hydra’s participation at the event, Mike Jessop, Managing Director @ Unique Hydra stated, “We are delighted to be exhibiting and sponsoring at the IMCA Annual Seminar 2014 which aims at focusing on technical discussions on a wide range of topics associated with the marine contracting industry. We are looking forward to launching our HYDRACraft system which is the first diving Daughter craft to be purpose designed by a diving equipment designer and manufacturer. We also look forward to networking with our existing clients in the diving industry and making new clients over the two-day course of the event.”
