Unique Group Bags Two ABS Nitrox Dive-ROV Systems Orders
Unique Group’s Diving & Life Support division has secured orders for two of its Hydra ABS nitrox surface dive-ROV systems from the client in Nigeria.
The systems comprise a dive-ROV control and chamber container, machinery container, air and nitrox 10ft HP gas storage containers, two single basket LARS and a SRP boat. The systems will be ABS classed and compliant with the IMCA, OGP and ExxonMobil requirements, the company explained.
Bob Elshove, sales director at Unique Group’s Hydra division, which is based in South Africa, said, “We are very pleased to have received this order and look forward to seeing these systems make the journey offshore and working. Through engagement with our client we are producing innovative diving systems that will reduce our client’s operational costs.”
The dive-ROV control and chamber container is fitted with a 1500 chamber and a control space with both a nitrox dive control suite and a ROV control station for a Seaeye Falcon ROV system.
The machinery container is fitted with a Nuvair nitrox generation unit, two L&W HP air compressors, a Unique Hydra Tools HPU, a technician’s workbench and spares storage.
Each system is supplied with two 10ft HP gas storage containers one for air and one for nitrox. This enables the operator to switch easily between air and nitrox diving, Unique explained.
The SRP Boats supplied are 7.5 meters Rhino HDPE rugged workboats with diesel outboard engines. They are designed for diving operations and have Unique Hydra SRP systems fitted.
The systems will be delivered by the end of October 2016.
