JFD has completed the first stage of harbour acceptance trials of its first Deep Search and Rescue Vehicle (DSRV) for the Indian Navy’s Submarine Rescue System, the company announced on 13 February.

The system was comprehensively tested in a variety of conditions as part of the initial harbour acceptance trials process, which took place at the King George V dock in Glasgow, UK.

Following the completion of the trials, the DSRV will be fully integrated with the rest of the rescue systems, including the offshore handling system, intervention suite and 90 person decompression facilities.

The Submarine Rescue System has been developed to rescue of crews of a distressed submarine in minimal time.

JFD is under contract for two complete flyaway Submarine Rescue Systems for the Indian Navy, including DSRVs, launch and recovery systems equipment, transfer under pressure systems, and all logistics and support equipment required to operate the service.

The full, certified systems are due for delivery in June 2018.
