Unique Hydra Delivers Air Dive Systems to Subtech Offshore
Unique Hydra, a Unique Maritime Group (UMG) company which is one of the world’s leading integrated turnkey subsea and offshore solution providers, recently delivered the largest single order for air dive systems to its client Subtech Offshore Services.
Based in Cape Town (South Africa), Unique Hydra is a leading manufacturer and supplier of marine and diving equipment to the oil and gas industry. Unique Hydra personnel have substantial experience in marine engineering, hyperbaric, military defense, aerospace, nuclear and chemical engineering. Their experience has given the Unique Maritime Group a leading edge in obtaining contracts involving the design, production, supply and maintenance of its specialized equipment.
Subtech Offshore is a leading provider of subsea engineering services to the offshore oil and gas industry worldwide. The company provides turnkey project solutions to the industry as well as component solutions to multi- party projects.
Subtech successfully contracted the long term diving and support services contract in Saudi Arabia and with the specific tender and technical requirements for high quality and durable build, Unique Hydra was successfully selected from the bid program to supply the diving equipment. The order included 6 complete SL3.1 Air diving controls and chamber systems as well as the relevant SL 3.6 Machinery packages.
Paul Whiley, Managing Director at Subtech Offshore added: “For Subtech, fulfilling our Quality Assurance roll-out to industry expectations means that diving equipment quality has to be amongst the cornerstone markers for our careful consideration. Whilst it is always great to have shiny new kit, safety inextricably remains the primary driver, and on this subject, there can obviously be no compromise. To this end, we are especially pleased with what Mike Jessop and his team have put together for us and I would like to thank them most sincerely. It is in fact most rare these days in business that product quality comfortably exceeds client expectations in every aspect – with these builds we have that. Subtech will remain compliant arguably for decades into the future, as we use this equipment to take us forward. Having had a really good look at what has been delivered, quite frankly some of it is perhaps even a little ”over the top”, [with particular reference here to the machinery containers, which are literally perfect]! – Needless to say, this delivery has pleased our clients, our divers and naturally so too our shareholders, and we thank Mike’s team again.”
Mike Jessop, Managing Director at Unique Hydra commented on the magnitude of the contract saying, “It was refreshing to see new equipment requirements being realised in the industry and the progressive view taken by Subtech Qatar management. Not only is the equipment meeting the current requirements of IMCA and OGP, but also fulfils the newly proposed IMCA D023 requirements and other FMEA system needs.”
