With a wet bell and surface supplied dive station, ROV control cabin and Launch & Recovery System, and access to our main dive site, our jetty is fully equipped with the key facilities to train you for the subsea industry.
This allows access to depth ranges from 8m to 28m. It is the base for the majority of the Part 1 and Part 2 in-water dive training.
Wet Bell System
Wet bell systems are used offshore to increase the safety for the diving team. This system is used during the ADAS Part 3 Wet Bell diver training in depth ranges from 6m to 28m (see Subsea Site section for information on the deeper dives carried out during this course). Dives are carried out wearing hot water suits and include bell to bell rescues, surface to bell rescues, hydraulic tool tasks and surface decompression instruction.
Surface Supplied Dive Control Cabin
This is the chief dive control centre for the main dive site, and is where the bulk of dive supervision is conducted from for the ADAS Part 1 and 2 courses. It houses all required dive control equipment for those dives. There are a minimum of 45 Part 1 and 2 Training Dives, and these include rescues, searches, hydraulic and pneumatic tool tasks, and underwater welding and cutting.
ROV Control Cabin and Launch & Recovery System
The ROV control cabin is linked to the dive operations via radio communications, adding another operational element for students to become familiar with before heading offshore. The control cabin is set up to familiarise you with the key competencies in piloting an ROV in a challenging tidal environment. The jetty also holds the ROV Launch & Recovery System: a hi-ab telescopic crane and cage.
