Divex has been awarded a multi million pound contract to supply a saturation diving system to Keppel Singmarine.

Divex, a subsidiary of James Fisher and Sons plc and a world leader in commercial and defence diving products, has been contracted by Singapore shipyard Keppel Singmarine (KSM) for the engineering design, supply and installation of a 300 metre depth 18 man twin bell / twin hyperbaric lifeboat saturation diving system to be classed by DNV.

The diving systems, which will include an air/nitrox surface diving capability, are to be installed upon a new build vessel for BP Exploration Shah Deniz II Project in the Caspian Sea.  The vessel which is to be 155m long with a beam of 32m, is being purpose built for the construction phase of the project.

The vessel will be constructed in KSM’s Singapore yard in two longitudinal halves of 16m beam each. These will then be transported into the Caspian Sea through the canal linking to the Black Sea. The vessel will be completed in the Baku Shipyard for delivery in 2017.

The dive system is to comprise two side mate diving bells mated to individual Transfer Under Pressure chambers. The divers are housed in five saturation chambers. The diving bells will be deployed using the Divex pioneered triple winch guide wireless system which eliminates the traditional clump weight. Divex standard products include; Gasmizer, Gaspure and Helipure gas recovery systems and the Kinergetic range of environmental conditioning and life support systems.  Manufacture will be distributed around various Divex global facilities including Aberdeen and Glasgow, Scotland, South Africa and Australia.

Joint Managing Director, Derek Clarke commented: “This is a very important win for us particularly given the standing of both Keppel Singmarine and the ultimate owner, BP. It is the culmination of many months of work and a fitting reward for all the effort put in by Divex staff to provide the very best diving technology. Current diving support vessels in the Caspian are from the era going back to the 80s so when she is operational she will herald a significant leap forward in diving technology terms”.

Divex has a long pedigree in the successful design and manufacture of saturation diving systems and the company’s track record shows more than one hundred systems built spanning the last 35 years.

Divex Asia Pacific are moving in to a new shared facility with our sister company James Fisher Defence in Perth, Australia. This new facility will allow us to provide a greater total underwater capability offering to our customers.

As a result of this move the current Divex facilities at 1 Success Way (Head office) and 8A Sparks Road (Stores) will be non-operational between Thursday 11 – Friday 12 September while the move commences. This means no deliveries will be available at these facilities during this time.

As of Monday 15 September 2014, Divex will be operating from the below address:

Address: 54 Bushland Ridge, Bibra Lake , Perth , WA 6163, Australia
Tel: +61 (0)8 9437 6800

Please could we ask that you update your records to our new facility address above from 15 September onwards.

We hope to make this transition between facilities as smooth as possible to minimise disruption to our customers.

Many thanks
