Mermaid Endurer on sea trial in Bergen, May 23. 2010
Mermaid Endurer is a purpose-built DP2 DSV with diesel-electric propulsion, due for delivery in April 2010. The vessel features a fully built-in and classed 18-man single bell saturation diving system rated to 300m water depth, including a self-propelled hyperbaric lifeboat. Dive gas storage cylinders are located below main deck level, leaving all back deck space for project equipment. A 100T active heave-compensated knuckle-boom crane enables Mermaid Endurer to perform light construction operations.
