Deltron's Rebreather Equip., Spill Prevention & Containment

Wednesday, June 09, 2010

Deltron, Inc. (DTRO), through its Blu Vu Deep Oil and Gas Exploration, Inc. division, is developing rebreather equipment to aid in preventing and containing offshore oil spills. Deltron recognizes the critical need for solutions to improve inspection, maintenance and repair of deep water oil and gas rigs like BP's Deepwater Horizon. The company has designed proprietary closed circuit rebreather systems to enable commercial divers to reach greater depths, stay underwater longer, increase productivity while submerged, and reduce decompression and recovery time. Deltron's solutions are engineered to allow offshore drilling companies to provide more comprehensive equipment inspections and thorough maintenance operations as well as maximizing diving time when needed during critical spill containment maneuvers.

Henry Larrucea, Deltron CEO, commented: "The BP spill and its disastrous effects on the environment and economy of the Gulf of Mexico highlight the urgent need for better deep sea maintenance and prevention solutions for oil and gas exploration and production. Our Blu Vu rebreather technology is designed to maximize dive time and diver efficiency in order to enable offshore drillers to provide better regular inspection and maintenance and fast, effective response to equipment failures, leaks and spills."

Blu Vu Deep Oil & Gas Exploration is a developer of breathing technology for use in extreme environments. Founded in 2007 and led by an internationally renowned deep sea diving expert, Blu Vu designs and develops proprietary closed-circuit rebreathers and components for deep sea oil & gas exploration and production, as well as breathing systems for mining, search and rescue, fire, building safety and hazardous materials applications.
