As with most years, the sun shone on us while we held our annual golf day. Our first golf day since we became JFD was a resounding success with some fantastic golf being played!

Held on Friday 28 August over 40 golfers joined us at Kemnay Golf Club to take part in the golf day with some new faces participating. Always a well-attended event we had people from as far down as Portsmouth come along and Debs was out in force with her camera as usual. A big thank you to Caroline Alex from the Inchinnan office for helping Debs on the day!

As always the Championship Trophy is highly coveted and this year’s winner was none other than Steven Cumming from Lloyds Register, well done! The JFD Staff Championship Trophy was claimed this year by Steven Godsman. There were many other prize winners on the day, as can be seen below.

JFD would like to thank all those who were able to make the day, your excellent company made it a fantastic day! We hope you had as good a time as we did.

All the photos that Debs took can be seen below – enjoy!

Cobra Recognised For Its Innovation At The Elevator Awards

Cobra Recognised For Its Innovation At The Elevator Awards

As their new bailout rebreather COBRA nears availability, the team at Divex are recognised for their innovation at the annual Elevator Awards.

COBRA (Compact Bailout Rebreathing Apparatus) is a unique system developed by the Divex design team in Aberdeen to respond to an urgent safety requirement in the world’s saturation diving industry. The system provides greatly extended emergency breathing gas to stranded saturation divers in an emergency scenario.

Mike Howarth, Managing Director at Divex says:

“I’m immensely proud of what the team has achieved. COBRA is a massive leap forward in technology and is the embodiment of our commitment to subsea safety. Our Engineers have doubled emergency life support, without increasing weight or size. Our Designers have made COBRA easier to operate and maintain than ever before and our Testing & Operations teams have worked tirelessly to ensure COBRA’s patented design is as reliable as our customers demand. It’s this coming together of disciplines, this large-scale teamwork that makes revolutionary products like COBRA possible. And it’s what sets Divex brand equipment apart from the rest of the industry.”

The set has been designed to be as simple as possible to operate and maintain and is completely mechanical, relying on no complex electronics for its operation. It has been developed to provide up to 45 minutes of fully independent breathing gas to allow the diver to return to the safety of the bell. This is a significant improvement on conventional bailout methods, such as scuba which at certain depths can only provide 7 minutes of breathing gas.

The aim of the Elevator Awards is to encourage enterprise by selecting and rewarding businesses and individuals within Grampian who can help lead to the future prosperity of the region. The Innovation award category recognises businesses which can demonstrate a proven ability to create, nurture and develop innovative products, processes or services that substantially improve the commercial performance or prospects of the business.

COBRA is expected to be available to customers in the last quarter of 2015. Interested customers can contact Debbie Allan (d.allan@jfdglobal.com) for further information on availability or for a demonstration of the set.
