Two commercial offshore diving companies, IHC Hytech and Fathom Systems, joined forces by signing a new international distributor agreement that was signed on May 7, 2013. Under the terms of the agreement, IHC Hytech will distribute Fathom Systems’ products in the commercial diving, hyperbaric tunneling and medical equipment markets.
 

Based in Raamsdonksveer in The Netherlands, IHC Hytech is part of IHC Merwede, and designs and manufactures equipment for offshore diving and other related markets. Its product portfolio ranges from small portable breathing gas panels, to complete turnkey hyperbaric multi-chamber systems that are supplied complete with environmental control units. The company is also IHC Merwede’s in-house center for offshore-diving technology and the integration of equipment into the group’s wide range of standard and custom-built vessels.
 

Fathom Systems is based near Aberdeen in Scotland, from where it supplies engineering solutions and related products to the commercial diving, ROV and underwater engineering industries. It uses the latest technology to produce a range of products, backed with customer support, as well as consultancy, project engineering and operational support.
 

The products detailed within the international distributor agreement are proprietary systems, such as those for diver monitoring and communications; helium unscrambler and acoustic through-water communications; intelligent gas analysis; chamber shutdown control; transducer instrumentation and dedicated control. These will initially be sold and made available for hire in the Benelux countries and France by IHC Hytech, with exclusivity to generate new business within specified territories, depending on the market segment.
