Offshore handling systems specialist Caley Ocean Systems is supplying Singapore-based diving and subsea equipment company Flash Tekk Engineering with saturation dive bell handling systems for its client Ultra Deep Solutions’ vessels Deep Installer and Van Gogh DSCVs.
 
The Caley dive bell handling systems are designed for deployment and recovery of a 24-man DNV classed twin bell saturation dive system for the Ultra Deep Installer, and a DNV classed 18-man bell saturation dive system for the Van Gogh, for operations to 300 meters water depth. On each dive support vessel, the bell is deployed via a moonpool using the Caley bell handling system featuring two clump weight guide wire winches and main bell cable winch.  The systems are fully DNV classed approved.
