March 2017 – Vocean Falcon Dives to 376m

Amongst  the demands of Hydro Tunnel inspection,  often  Penstocks are deeper than the  300m  capability of the Standard Seaeye Falcon. To meet this requirement Vocean have upgraded the Falcon to 400m operational rating.  This required extensive audit of all external pressure  housings. Where necessary housings  were replaced. The  system has recently  been proven, being dived to  376m on four successive dives.  A further increase to 600m operational capability is in the final planning stages and will be implemented if the market indicates demand.
