RS surveyors undertook the design review and plan approval, survey of testing. The system was surveyed in Singapore, the final stage including launching was held on Sakhalin island. All the system tests including a deep dive with people on board were satisfactory, therefore, a classification certificate was issued by RS and the RS class К✪ SDS was assigned. The system will be installed on board the supply vessel Kendrick and will enable a wide range of tasks connected to the repair and assembly of underwater facilities to be solved.
