Hyperbaric Rescue Capsules (HRC)


HRCs are the traditional type of Hyperbaric Evacuation Unit that complies with IMO Resolution A.692 (17) “Guidelines and specifications for Hyperbaric Evacuation Systems” allowing survival for up to 72 hours.

 

HRCs are normally towed away from the Dive Support Vessel (DSV) to a safe area and then retrieved onto deck using the A-Frame.

 

Once on deck they are secured with lashings and connected to the flyaway pack.

 

As they are not self powered, many Oil and Gas operators are no longer permitting their use.

 

The Thrust Maritime A-Frames are designed to be able to recover all known HRCs.
