KW Group have started the New Year with another major order from a global defence and security component manufacturer, in line with KWs plan to diversify into new markets, expanding on the oil & gas and subsea sectors.

KW will be designing, manufacturing, assembling and installing the hyperbaric test chamber which will have an internal volume in excess of 1100 litres, with a one metre internal bore and will utilise its popular manual chock closure system. The hyperbaric chamber will come complete with a fully automated fluid management system to directly simulate the harsh deep ocean conditions to meet the customer's specific test profiles and procedures with data logging and reporting capabilities.

This system will also include a product basket, closure parking frame, access platform and a bund which surrounds the chamber and integrated into the chamber support frame which will contain vessel fluid in the event of an accidental spill from product change-out.

The system will be fully installed and commissioned, followed by a comprehensive operator training programme including both, basic and advanced training for the on-site operators.

KW are also providing a Written Scheme of Examination in line with the Pressure System Safety Regulations (PSSR:2000) to ensure the system is inspected annually, in line with all relevant legislation.
