Offshore handling systems specialist, Caley Ocean Systems, is supplying Singapore based, diving and subsea equipment company Flash Tekk Engineering with saturation dive bell handling systems for its client Ultra Deep Solutions’ vessels Deep Installer and Van Gogh DSCVs.
The Caley dive bell handling systems are designed for deployment and recovery of a 24-man DNV classed twin bell saturation dive system for the Ultra Deep Installer, and a DNV classed 18-man bell saturation dive system for the Van Gogh, for operations to 300 metres water depth. On each dive support vessel, the bell is deployed via a moonpool using the Caley bell handling system featuring two clump weight guide wire winches and main bell cable winch. The systems are fully DNV classed approved.
“We are delighted to have been selected by Flash Tekk Engineering for these high profile dive bell handling projects,” says Gregor McPherson, sales director, Caley Ocean Systems. “Caley’s experience in dive bell handling systems engineering gives us the edge for this kind of project; where the combination of winch technology and control elements allows us to ensure that all aspects of the dive bell system are fully optimised.”
The new build ‘Ultra Deep Installer’ dive support and construction vessel, commissioned by Ultra Deep Solutions and constructed by China Merchants Industry Holdings, Schenzen is due for delivery to UDS in Singapore around Q2-18. The DP2 DSCV Van Gogh is a state of art DP2 Multipurpose Diving Support Vessel / SPS Code 2008.
