Unique Hydra has been selected by Ultra Deep Solutions (UDS) to design, build and integrate the dive system for a multipurpose Diving Support Construction Vessel (DSCV).
According to Unique Hydra, , a division of Unique Maritime Group (UMG) an integrated turnkey subsea and offshore solutions provider, the new DSCV will be equipped with a 300HD 18-man twin bell Saturation Diving System.
The dive system incorporates the latest mechanical and electrical design requirements, Unique Hydra has said, adding that the diving system offers a first in the drive towards reducing the complexity of shipyard integration and installation time frames.
The vessel is designed to operate up to 4000m water depth. It is modeled on the proprietary “Red Class 6027” MT design DSCV and is a DP3, 142-meter multipurpose subsea DSCV.
Mike Jessop, Managing Director Unique Hydra commented, “We are aware of our client’s requirement for a modern and reliable DSCV. The award of this project demonstrates our clients’ confidence in Unique Hydra’s in-depth technical capabilities, our strength in project execution and the considerable financial capabilities established through our corporate partnership recently formed with Blue Water Energy. We have increased our DSV solution capabilities over the last year and we are globally positioned to handle multiple DSV contracts. We strongly believe that over the next few years our brand and product will become the Diving System of choice.”
Shel Hutton, Chief Executive Officer at UDS said:“With only 30 similarly-sized but older vessels worldwide, and the requirement in the industry for safe yet fast-response vessels, UDS is poised to deliver such high standards of quality to the deep and ULTRADEEP water projects. The “Red Class 6027” combines the practicality, safety, reliability, efficiency and impressive subsea technology. We are confident that it will exceed the expectations of oil majors and offshore operators.”
