JFD Saturation Diving System for Shanghai Salvage

James Fisher and Sons’ subsidiary JFD has been awarded approximately £35-million ($43.7 million) contract by Shanghai Salvage (SS) to supply a 24-man saturation diving system rated for diving support to depths of 500 meters.

The contract is for the design and build of two independent 12 man saturation dive systems for delivery in 2019, including diving bell, hyperbaric lifeboat, gas management and life support equipment.

The systems can be deployed individually on vessels or installed together on board a dive support vessel.

To remind, in 2008 JFD supplied Shanghai Salvage with a 300-meter rated saturation diving system which achieved the Chinese record for the deepest saturation dive in 2014.

Nick Henry, chief executive officer of JFS, said: “The decision to award the contract to JFD is testament to our proven capability. Shanghai Salvage has recognised the key benefits associated with JFD systems and we are delighted to support them once again as their diving operations advance into deeper waters. JFD prides itself on its engineering expertise which has been developed over the past 35 years, allowing us to deliver highly specialised and technologically advanced systems of exceptional quality.”
