Okay, I know this may appear like a strange thing to some who don't know, but for those who do or who have an idea about the Marine and Subsea space, they will appreciate these pictures.IMG_20191129_142922_2.jpg
The above is the control room of a Saturation Diving scope and is really looks fancy when you stand before it in person.


As a Subsea personnel, we get to see some amazing stuffs that allows deepwater exploration become so easy and fun. Apart from the equipment, you get to see the open sea from side to endless sides.20200721_093817.jpg

Saturation Diving scope.

Saturation Diving is a diving technique that allows divers to reduce the risk of decompression sickness ("the bends") when they work at great depths for long periods of time because once saturated, decompression time does not increase with further exposure. It is a diving that allows divers to go deep into the sea as much as 700m or more, way more than the air divers can go and the deeper they go, the need for decompression.
In Saturation diving, divers are housed in a diving chamber (as can be seen in the picture below) for a period of up to 6 weeks and are attended to through a bell system. Just read about it from the link.

It is an amazing job and it pays very well with a diver earning as much as $45,000 – $90,000 per month and over $500,000 annually. Really, that much!!!

The pictures look great but when you do get to be on ground to take snapshots, you will be amazed.

Make the world a better place for someone today!

Where is this place?

This is a work site aboard a vessel offshore Nigeria I worked on a while ago.

Stay Awesome!
