The HRF was transported to Pensacola in the state of Florida, set up and completed various procedures including IMCA testing and subsequent customer approval. The system was leased by Cal Dive International for the duration of its project in order to ensure the safety of its saturation divers in the event of an emergency while on the project. The testing of the unit and fit up and test of the SPHL to the unit were successfully completed in the last week of August.

HRF units are used in the diving industry to ensure that, in the event of an emergency evacuation of a DSV having divers in saturation, the divers will have availability of more controlled and comfortable decompression and medical treatment. Their HRC or SPHL after launch can be transported to the HRF which is set up at a shore facility where monitoring and decompression of the divers can be safely completed.

On achieving this significant milestone, Arjun Ramchandani, CEO Unique System LLC (USA) commented, “We are extremely delighted to have successfully completed our first HRF mobilization project. Reiterating the quality and safety factors which are of utmost importance to UMG, complete measures were taken by our highly-skilled technicians to include various levels of testing before the system was leased to our client. We look forward to carry out similar mobilizations for our clients in the near future as well.”
