Deep diver suits unveiled.
The suits, with 360-degree joint rotation, are designed for under water construction, inspection and general sub-sea actuation and intervention support. Operators are able to use a "comprehensive range of tools, tooling systems and sensors," noted a company spokesman.
While Phoenix International specializes in underwater ship repairs, sub-sea surveys, deep ocean search/recovery, submarine rescue and engineering, these deep dive systems would be used primarily to service the Gulf of Mexico energy industry, the official explained.
