New Project

We are delighted to announce that DRASS has been awarded a CONTRACT to supply an advanced diving system for the new Submarine Rescue Ship ASR-II of the Korean Navy, The ASR-II ship is being built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering (DSME).

The project includes the design, manufacture and installation of the complete set of equipment, and will be executed in collaboration with the local partner Dongil Shipyard.
DSME is one of the 5 largest shipyards in the world with an extensive record of military and offshore vessels. DRASS is DSME’s supplier of preference for diving and submarine rescue equipment, and a returning partner after the successful delivery of ATS-II rescue ship for the Korean Navy in 2016.

This achievement consolidates Drass’ long standing in the Korean market as the sole reference for all key shipbuilders, including Hanjin and Hyundai, in the commercial offshore and defense sectors.

Last month Drass was invited by TechnipFMC to participate in the Naming Ceremony of the Deep Discoverer in Aalesund, Norway. She is the latest addition to the TechnipFMC Fleet and is a DSV (Diving Support Vessel) equipped with a DRASS twin-bell 18-man saturation diving system.
Drass 100 Series Saturation Diving System is recognized as being among the most desired systems available on the market. In fact, it is the only recognized, standard and complete package of industrialized equipment of serial production in the industry. As such, Drass is counted on to supply DSVs for vessels of the offshore industry’s titans such as TechnipFMC, Subsea 7, Kreuz, and Boskalis.

The Technip Deep Discovery Vessel is equipped with an 18-man, Twin Bell dive system. It consists of 4 Single Lock Diving Decompression Chambers (3-6-man occupancy), 2 horizontal TUPs, and 4 Vertical Entry Locks, with port and starboard 18-man Hyperbaric Lifeboats. The bells are moon pool launched with cursor guidance.
The system is rated to 300msw and is supplied with 37100 Nm3 gas storage, providing long-lasting continuous activity at the deepest rated depth for both the reclaim system and the recovery system in operation.
A surface Twin Lock decompression chamber and relevant launching system is fitted for operations of up to 60 msw.

Drass was highly involved in the Deep Discoverer’s diving system integration, providing full turnkey engineering solutions to the ship designers, and a complete support to the ship builders during the commissioning and testing. Drass is honored to have been a part of this Naming Ceremony, a truly historic occasion shared with a great team of colleagues at TechnipFMC. Thank you for your partnership and hospitality.
Drass would also like to extend a special thanks to everyone involved in the commissioning of the system from its inception through to completion. Great job guys!

Drass has recently gained DNVGL 2.7.2 certification for its latest Offshore Service Module.
This module is outfitted with a robust heating and cooling capability following the customer requirement to provide a heating and cooling system to a hyperbaric welding habitat, at a maximum depth of 100 meters. The whole system has been incorporated within a small space – that of a 10 foot long container – with full compliance for the DNVGL 2.7.2 Standard safety aspects.
Another particularity of this project was the remote survey performed by DNVGL surveyors directly from Aberdeen, an efficient alternative to traditional inspection methods.

With this system, Drass once again demonstrates its continuous commitment to producing high-quality solutions that satisfy the most demanding requirements of our customers in the oil and gas industry.

Drass is proud to announce that Subspec, a Drass Group company, has been selected to be a part of the ADI Design Index 2018.
This is the annual publication promoted by ADI (Italian Association for Industrial Design) that assesses all of the best-designed Italian products. Thanks to the expertise of our industrial designer Enkreo, a Drass Group company, Subspec has been nominated for the ADI Gold Compass Award and was chosen to present its state-of-the-art Diving Compact BIBS (Built-in Breathing System) Mask at the Annual ADI Ceremony on November 20th in Rome.

BIBS masks are used to administer oxygen to divers during decompression, to medical patients in hyperbaric chambers, and in the event that a chamber atmosphere is contaminated as BIBS supply breathable, non-contaminated gas from an independent source. Subspec’s BIBS product, known as U-101, has been designed to arrange the weight as close to the user as possible which is particularly important for divers. The result is a compact and light mask, with the COG (center of gravity) and the tube connection very close to the face. At the same time, the integration of all the components inside the protective shell results in a completely integrated structure with no suspended elements thereby reducing associated forces and strain to the neck without compromising movement of the diver’s head.

All ADI product nominations form part of ADI’s annual publication of product innovation, and one stands the chance of receiving ADI Gold Compass Award, the oldest and most prestigious design award.

Congratulations again from Drass to Subspec and Enkreo for their contribution and this honor!
