Harvey Bisso Subsea has launched operations to provide subsea services to the energy and maritime industries. The new subsea venture combines the expertise, resources and experience of Bisso Marine and Harvey Gulf International Marine

The centerpiece of the venture is a new, fully-classed 12-man Saturation Diving System with a working depth of 1,000 feet. The portable SAT system will be deployed from the Harvey Discovery, a 265 x 58-ft, DP2 certified multi-purpose support vessel outfitted with a 65-ton crane and moon pool. The vessel provides accommodations for up to 53.

The new SAT System features a gas reclaim system, which allows expelled gases to be circulated and recycled. It has a dual-lock, six-man deck decompression chamber, a 12-man launch-able flyaway hyperbaric rescue chamber, a dual-lock, six-man come-out chamber and a three-man diving bell.

“This SAT System expands our working depth and fully maximizes our productive bottom time. Combined with Harvey Gulf’s dynamically positioned vessel, we can provide maximized safety and an even greater level of diving services to our clients worldwide,” said W.A. “Beau” Bisso IV, president and chief executive officer of Bisso Marine. 

The portable diving system has a bell launch and recovery system, a saturation dive control van and two machinery vans. It has a 12-ton main bell winch and a six-ton guide wire winch. The bell umbilical is 1,150 feet long and the bell handling system is a hydraulically actuated A-frame. The system is fully classed by ABS and IMCA compliant.
