Bibby Offshore Deploys JFD’s COBRA in North Sea

Bibby Offshore has become the first to deploy JFD’s Compact Bailout Rebreathing Apparatus (COBRA) diving safety system in the North Sea.

The company deployed COBRA during a recent contract with BP North Sea.

Working at depths of up to 110 meters, the Bibby divers used the COBRA system to deliver electrical umbilical installation, subsea control module (SCM) change-out, and production and controls system integrity testing, deisolation and commissioning services.

Howard Woodcock, chief executive at Bibby Offshore, said: “The safety of our personnel is paramount at all times. COBRA significantly enhances the time our saturation divers have to return to the diving bell in an emergency situation – a step-change in improving subsea safety and one we will adopt in the future across our fleet.”
