Osiris, part of James Fisher and Sons, has taken delivery of its new Bauer Enriched Air Nitrox diving system.
The diving and subsea engineering specialist said that the system will be used for projects in the offshore renewable and oil and gas industries, the system is fully IMCA compliant and operates to the highest standard, as required in the challenging subsea environment.
According to the company, the system is fully IMCA compliant and its arrival further enhances Osiris’s diving capabilities.
The system enables longer dive times with a potential reduction in the required number of divers on-site as well creating the potential to reduce operational downtime, as the system is capable of blending gas and refilling cylinders on-site.
Aiden West, managing director of Osiris, explains: “With health and safety underpinning all offshore subsea operations, being the first commercial diving company based in the UK to undertake this course, along with a fully operating Enriched Air Nitrox system, only goes to prove our reputation as an innovative subsea service provider, which is highlighted by our impressive safety record.”
James Ridgeway, global subsea manager at Osiris, added: “The arrival of this asset takes us to a new level where we can continue to grow our market share in the oil and gas inspection, repair and maintenance sector. We’re part of a small handful of companies worldwide who have this capability and we will be able to fulfill the industry’s requirement for well trained and experienced enriched air and Nitrox diving service providers.”
