JFD Boosts UK Hyperbaric Rescue Portfolio

JFD has recently accepted the delivery of a portable 18-man hyperbaric rescue facility (HRF) to expand its offer to offshore operators in the UK.

JFD’s National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC) houses the only land-based saturation diving complex in the UK, and the addition of the portable HRF means JFD can extend this support across all UK waters.

The HRF was built by JFD at their Australian facility to support a diving contract based in Western Australia. It is designed to mate to a Self-Propelled Hyperbaric Lifeboat (SPHL) or to a Hyperbaric Rescue Chamber (HRC) to allow the divers to transfer under pressure to the HRF chamber and continue decompressing away from the dangers that have ensued upon the vessel. Following an evacuation, divers have up to 72 hours life support on board.

The HRF is built to Lloyd’s Register Rules for the Construction & Classification of Submersibles and Diving Systems and is fully IMCA compliant.
