JFD has recently provided a client with a hydro test of their submarine hull, using our 100 bar work chamber based at our National Hyperbaric Centre (NHC) facility in Aberdeen.
 
To support this test JFD had to remove the door of the work chamber in advance of the client's equipment arriving onsite.

The full 300cm (internal diameter) x 800cm (internal length) and 63m2 volume of the chamber was used in the test with only cms to spare from the end of the submarine and internal wall.

JFD used a 100 Tonne mobile crane to offload the submarine from the client trailer on arrival, load on to our trolley and into the chamber where it was strapped down to overcome the buoyancy.
