Delivering diver safety worldwide

Two more hyperbaric lifeboats arrive in Singapore to further boost the Flash Tekk fleet.

JFD’s on-going partnership with Singapore-based lifeboat manufacturers, Vanguarde is growing from strength to strength with the delivery of a second pair of next generation self-propelled hyperbaric lifeboats (SPHLs) to Singaporean diving engineering firm Flash Tekk. This marks the completion of a second order for the partnership, with a further three planned projects still underway.

The SPHLs, which lead the way in terms of operational safety standards for saturation divers are being delivered to Flash Tekk’s parent company Ultra Deep Solutions (UDS) which builds and operates diving heavy construction vessels. They will be installed a new diving support and construction vessel (DSCV) named the Andy Warhol.

This is one of four new build diving support vessels in UDS’s fleet all named after famous artists. It joins the Picasso, the Van Gogh, and the Matisse.

Danny Gray, JFD’s products and support director, says:

 ‘We set out to develop the safest, most advanced and most ergonomic SPHLs on the market and provide the highest levels of assurance of diver safety. The successful delivery of these new lifeboats represents another milestone in realising that ambition, and allows us to further offer our global client base solutions that meet the most demanding of saturation diving system requirements.’

JFD’s proven hyperbaric and chamber design represent a step change in advanced escape capability that greatly improve the chances of a successful, safe evacuation for divers. Although bespoke designs are available, the standard SPHLs are engineered to 12, 18 and 24-man configurations, rated to 600msw.
