Unique Hydra unveils the HYDRACraft series

CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- Unique Hydra has received its second order this year for the company's diving daughtercraft system, the HYDRACraft. Unique Hydra has spent the past twelve months engaging with clients to understand their diving daughtercraft operational and equipment requirements and developing a purpose built vessel which includes a fully integrated dive system.

Diving Daughtercraft systems are used in diving operations where the conventional diving DSV is not able to position itself close enough to an FPSO or offshore platform. The daughtercraft is fitted with surface supplied diving systems capable of supporting Nitrox and/or air diving operations and is assisted by an additional “support craft” that transfers personnel and supplies during the diving operations.

The mother vessel, barge or platform is outfitted with davits for the daughtercraft and support craft as well as support equipment, including the decompression chamber, gas storage and compressors.

Currently, two designs of the purpose designed diving daughtercraft are available, the HYDRACraft 1400 14m 8 man, and the HYDRACraft 1500 15m 10 man. The HYDRACraft design considers features and attributes required for safe and effective diving operations.
