New Pommec Dive-Control System for Briggs Marine Contractors

Due to an increase in demand for diving services, Briggs Marine Contractors has identified a need to add to its current dive spread. Dutch company, Pommec BV has been awarded the build contract for an additional stand-alone dive-control with attached air supply and compressor, a safe, simple ‘Plug and Play’ system that can be used aboard a vessel or along the quayside.

Briggs has over 40 years experience in coastal and offshore operations, with services ranging from; vessel charter and management, submarine cable installation and repair, diving services, marine survey, emergency response and salvage. Briggs has gained an in-depth knowledge of delivering marine renewable energy services on time and within budget and the new unit provides Clients with a quick response, safe and efficient mobilisation solution.

Pommec BV is a leading European manufacturer and worldwide supplier of commercial diving equipment. Pommec is considered to be the market leader in Diver Launch and Recovery Systems and has already built and delivered LARS to Briggs Marine.

Rudi Pommé, Pommec BV said “It has been a challenge to meet all the demands that Briggs Marine made in the design of the system as it is a complete and unique stand-alone dive control, fitted in just a 20ft container. But I like challenges and I am pleased and proud to see another innovative system leaving our workshop.”

Alistair Blue, Dive Superintendent at Briggs said, “The Company’s strengths are in delivering safe, efficient, high quality marine solutions in challenging environments. It has been great to work on this project with Pommec and see the new unit already being mobilised to support a major infrastructure installation.”
