Built within a standard 20ft ISO Container externally finished in marine grade paint. The container has internal thermal insulation to the bulkhead walls and ceiling area and is temperature controlled. The floor area is finished with an anti-slip aluminium chequer plate covering.
The container is outfitted with the following hardware sufficient to support safe Air / Nitrox diving operations complete with shortened 60” Decompression Chamber allowing for minimal deck space requirement.
The operations will be conducted from the heavy lift barge `Norma` and will initially start with a detailed diving inspection of the boat to determine its condition and position on the seabed. From this survey the lift plan will be formulated.
The lifting will consist of passing wire strops under the U-Boat and connecting them to spreader beams on the port and starboard side. Onto these beams the main lift wires will be connected from the lift barge. Once all rigging is completed UB38 will be lifted approximately 3-4m clear of the seabed, then carefully towed two miles to its new resting place. Once in position, it will be lowered back onto the seabed and the lifting wires will be disconnected.
