COBRA wins safety award at Subsea Expo

Another example of the JFD commitment to safety is evidenced by the recent award the team won for its bailout rebreating system.

COBRA was singled our as a winner in the 'Innovation for Safety' category at the annual Subsea UK awards, held in Aberdeen in February. 

JFD managing director, Giovanni Corbetta says:

‘A product such as COBRA takes an enormous team effort to go from design concept to production and it’s thanks to the drive and passion of the team that we achieved this.’

‘We spent five years designing, testing and evolving COBRA to ensure we produced the most reliable piece of equipment which would safeguard the lives of divers and let them work with confidence in harsh environments.’

‘Operating in depths of up to 500m, with very little visibility and in temperatures close to zero they need to know they have the safest and most reliable bailout rebreather in the world on their backs.’
