Bluestream Orders Containerised Air-Dive Spreads from IHC Hytech

IHC Hytech, part of Royal IHC, has secured an order for two innovative containerised air-dive spreads from Bluestream, an offshore and subsea company that operates in the oil and gas, and renewable energy sectors.

These high-quality systems consist of a containerised 1,800mm decompression chamber with a full three-dive control panel and a separate machinery container that will be modified to meet the customer’s needs.

The complete containerised air dive spread has been certified by Lloyd’s Register, as part of the increasingly stringent regulations addressed by IHC Hytech that are particularly relevant to all parties involved in the surface-supplied diving industry.

IHC Hytech will supply the chambers in 20ft containers and the dive control panel with the latest available technologies in dive monitoring and layout design. For example, it will be computerised with a remote readout and complete sensor package. The divers’ data acquisition system will be installed in a 19″ rack with (among other features) two radios, inline breathing gas supply, oxygen percentage monitoring, video systems and various alarm units.

The divers’ data monitoring system is state of the art for the offshore diving sector, enhancing the safety and efficiency of shallow water diving operations. It displays and records vital data, including diver and chamber depth against time, and the dive control is installed with the latest camera and light control units for optimised subsea images.

The advanced equipment in the container also includes an inline air purity monitoring system with a multi-sensor gas analyser. This is specifically designed for the analysis of contaminants in compressed breathing air and offers an online analysis facility. This is complemented by the monitoring of the breathing gas compressor inlet for optimum safety.

“We are delighted that we will be manufacturing these high-end containerised air-dive spreads for Bluestream, which has been a valued customer of IHC Hytech for many years,” says IHC Hytech’s Managing Director Johan de Bie. “We are aware of our customers’ need to comply with legislation, and as an authority in this area of the subsea business, we can advise on the best and safest solutions to meet their specific requirements.”
