DiveSource, PaleBlue Present Dive Control Simulator

DiveSource has partnered with PaleBlue to launch dive control simulator in Aberdeen.

The companies presented the simulator to a range of operators and contractors, including Shell, BP and Bibby Offshore.

Allan Nairn, director of Diving at Bibby Offshore said, “I think this will be a superb tool in our field, verifying competency is a big thing for us. Being able to use the technology offshore will allow us to support our dive supervisors in maintaining their competency especially for emergency situations.”

The simulator features touch panel simulation engine by PaleBlue, named Icon. Running on screens with multi-touch interaction, the simulator can be switched from valve-based to computer monitor-based.

Sarah Hutcheon, managing director of DiveSource said: “By providing dive supervisors with real life operating conditions we are able to test the competency of the employees before they reach our clients. We can also use the system to verify the competency of not only dive supervisors but also the behavioral attitudes of our client reps using the emergency scenarios within the system.”
