JFD delivers safety-advanced diving equipment

JFD marks the first part of an extended multi-million point contract to design and manufacture a range of safety-advanced diving equipment.

Last year JFD formed a partnership with Singapore-based lifeboat manufacturer Vanguard to build a new safety-advanced range of Self-Propelled Hyperbaric Lifeboats (SPHLs). Now, final testing on the first two 18-man SPHLs has been completed making them ready for installation and commissioning.

This is a significant milestone for JFD which marks the first part of an extended multi-million pound contract to design and manufacture a range of next generation SPHLs and integrated davit systems to lead the way in terms of operational safety standards for saturation divers.

Ben Sharples, JFD business execution director explains:

‘Our highly experienced engineering and manufacturing teams have put in an incredible amount of hard work which has resulted in the production and delivery of two of the most safety-advanced SPHLs on the market.’

‘During the development phase, JFD pulled together expertise from dedicated teams across four continents working together with clients and industry veterans to set the latest engineering solutions against lessons learned from existing products on the market.’

Adds JFD project manager, Manoj Gaur.

JFD can now offer saturation system customers around the world a full range of SPHLs designed and manufactured in-house and fitted with trusted Divex equipment.

Although bespoke designs are available, the standard SPHLs will be engineered to 12, 18 and 24-man configurations with built-in self-righting capability and can be rated down to 600msw.
