OceanWorks Overhauls French Navy’s HARDSUIT ADS

OceanWorks, a subsea solution engineering company, has completed a survey and refurbishment of the French Navy’s HARDSUIT ADS.

The work was contracted to OceanWorks by ECA Robotics who maintains the HARDSUIT ADS for the French Navy.

The HARDSUIT ADS, initial delivered to the French Navy in 1991, is designed for a service life of up to 25 years. The recently completed overhaul will ensure the continued use of the HARDSUIT ADS by the French Navy in meeting its submarine rescue intervention requirements.

Upon receiving the HARDSUIT ADS, OceanWorks technicians first dis-assembled the suit and completed a thorough inspection.

The next step involved the replacement of internal parts such as O-rings, Teflon seals, and other items before the HARDSUIT ADS was then re-assembled and put through full functionality testing as well as hydrostatic testing to 1.4 times its operational depth.
