Integrated SPHL


Divex Integrated saturation diving systems utilise self –propelled hyperbaric lifeboats (SPHL) as a means of hyperbaric diver evacuation.

These fully comply with SOLAS and DNV requirements and conform to IMCA standards.

The SPHL accommodates all the divers in the system and is crewed by a coxswain and life support technician.

The remote control requirement of the SPHL is integrated within the Chamber Control Console. The interface to the HLB is via a short umbilical fitted with QCs.

An Escape Trunk complete with clamps is also provided as part of the system. This connects to the TUP outboard lock. The trunk is provided with through- deck sealing flanges to interface to the deck coaming arrangement.

The SPHL Davit is mounted on the ship’s side structure and uses a ‘Dead ship’ stored energy system for autonomous deployment.
