Osiris takes receipt of its new Bauer membrane production system - enabling significantly increased operational efficiency.

Osiris, part of James Fisher and Sons plc, is pleased to announce successful receipt of its new Bauer enriched air nitrox diving system. Significantly increasing its diving capability, Osiris's strategy of continuous improvement means it can now deliver integrated nitrox diving services with highly trained nitrox divers, enabling increased operational efficiency for its customers.

Working with sister company M&DS, Osiris were able to take advantage of the in-house capability on offer and develop a bespoke solution to deliver portable containerised air and nitrox diving solutions.

The state-of-the-art system, which is capable of blending gas and refilling cylinders on-site, offers a safe and cost-effective solution by enabling longer dive times, with a potential resultant reduction in on-site diver numbers and operational downtime.

The arrival of the enriched air nitrox system further enhances Osiris's diving capabilities and demonstrates its commitment to delivering world class standards in everything it does. Osiris is also the first UK based company to undertake a commercial Nitrox diver training course at The Underwater Centre in April 2014.

Aiden West, managing director of Osiris, explains, “With health and safety underpinning all offshore subsea operations, being the first commercial diving company based in the UK to undertake this course, along with a fully operating enriched air nitrox system, only goes to prove our reputation as an innovative subsea service provider, which is highlighted by our impressive safety record.”

Available immediately for projects in the global offshore renewable and oil and gas industries, the system is fully compliant with the International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) and operates to the highest standard, as required in the challenging subsea environment.
