In Bergen op Zoom DCN operates its full-fledged Hyperbaric Testing Facility to simulate every possible hyperbaric working situation. DCN’s Hyperbaric Testing Facility is unique in the Netherlands and rare in the world.
QinetiQ's Hyperbaric Trials Unit (HTU) forms part of an array of specialist equipment housed in QinetiQ's Diving and Hyperbaric Test Centre based in Haslar, Portsmouth which is helping test composite materials used in the construction of UK submarines.
The Hyperbaric Testing Facility also is a training facility for our divers. In the welding chamber 2 to 3 divers can work at the same time. However, they must be qualified to work at 200 meter. The welding chamber runs separately from the overpressure system where the divers sleep. The Hyperbaric Testing Facility includes a separate control container and saturation chamber under overpressure, with living accommodation including shower and laundry facilities.
WHA has established a Hyperbaric Test Facility to gain a better understanding of chamber fire safety and to determine the oxygen compatibility of materials in hyperbaric oxygen (HBO). The test results provide HBO users with the necessary information and data to make educated decisions for safe material selection. WHA has four Seachrist 2500 series monoplace hyperbaric chambers which were generously donated by .
