Hydra’s Fully-classed DP2 Saturation Diving Vessel Charter Ready

2013

  • The subsea construction company Hydra is making its saturation diving vessel available for charters.
  • It’s time for the Subsea Responder to charter as it has completed its 5-year reactivation survey.
  • It outperforms four-point SAT vessels and comes with ample deck space, 60-ton active heave compensated crane and accommodations for 57.
  • It is one of the three active DP2 SAT vessels operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

In a major development, the offshore and subsea construction company Hydra recently announced that their fully classed DP2 saturation diving vessel, the Subsea Responder, is available for immediate charter, reports World Oil.

Why the sudden Conversion?

Director of Projects, Trevor Davis, explained the Subsea Responder was converted to a saturation diving vessel earlier in 2018 after the acquisition of the SAT-14 saturation diving system. Now configured for saturation diving projects, the vessel is one of only three active DP2 SAT vessels operating in the Gulf of Mexico.

“We’re entering the saturation diving market with a powerful diving support vessel,” explained Davis. “The Subsea Responder outperforms four-point SAT vessels in every way. There’s no comparison.”

Time for change

The DP2 vessel boasts ample deck space, 60-ton active heave compensated crane and accommodations for 57. In addition, all systems are a go. It has just completed her five-year reactivation survey, USCG five-year COI, FMEA, sea trials, ABS special survey, ABS load test, and the SAT system has been pressure tested and USCG approved.

In Safe Hands

Overseeing projects for the vessel is a seasoned team, including Director of Projects Trevor Davis, Senior Project Manager and Business Development Phil McNabb, Saturation Diving Subject Matter Expert Charles Zamora, SAT Superintendent Frank Allbright and Vessel Master Lt Commander Marc Muldoon (Navy Reservist).
