We design and supply custom designed sub sea pressure housings
for a wide range of underwater engineering applications.
These sub sea housings have been designed and produced using metals,
engineering plastics and composites.
Alongside is a stainless steel underwater pressure housing for
electronics. The housing was designed for long term immersion and
was painted in order to minimise the consumption of the zinc anodes
protecting the whole skid.
Below it is a photograph of a lightweight underwater housing using
modern engineering plastics.
We are currently designing a range of new lightweight deepwater
housings using some of the most advanced metal matrix composite
materials available today.
The metal matrix composites provide great advantages for deep water
applications. We can now offer housings for 6000m which are near
neutral bouyancy, and even in some cases positively bouyant. This
provides considerable payload and hookweight benefits for free swimming
We are also working on subsea pressure housing designs for operation
at full ocean depth, 10915m, the bottom of the Challenger deep.
Our underwater engineering pressure vessel expertise also extends
to manned submersible hulls, diving bells and deck decompression
