We invite you to a breakfast seminar to discuss the industry's need for hyperbaric testing facilities.

An industry proven method for testing subsea equipment is through utilising hyperbaric pressure chambers, where the equipment will be exposed to a realistic environment and depth.

In Norway, the availability of large and ultra-deep test chambers is very limited, which may lead to additional costs, considering that the equipment may potentially be dispatched to other countries, e.g. UK which has lately invested largely in providing such testing facilities.

At this breakfast seminar, we invite the industry to provide input about the needs in terms of depth, size and functionalities of such a chamber system, as well as to discuss and identify the methods for getting such a facility in place.
