Drass was awarded a contract by Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction for the delivery of a 700 Series surface supplied mixed gas diving system, similar to the one completed and delivered in the summer of 2013.
The new Vessel will be built in South Korea at Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction Shipyard for the Korean Navy.
The new 700 Series Diving System will be certified by Korean Register on the base of the consolidated design of the 1st ATS-II Vessel.
The System is capable for an operability up to 300 fsw(91m) and is going to be provided with a Triple Lock surface decompression chamber provided with a life support system and gas management; one man transportable chamber is supplied and installed on the same deck of the handling system to allow a quick ingress of the Divers into the Chamber.
Thanks to a very compact design, the handling system is fully integrated in the Vessel General Arrangment. It is controlled by PLC and provided with automatic, semiautomatic and manual launch and recovery procedures. The Launch and Recovery is operated from a Wet Bell Handling Control Console. In addition Diver Stage and basked are provided for Divers launch and recovery.
