RS Divers save the day for a survey company
Emergency call out job in East London to reinsert a propeller shaft into the hull of a 20m survey vessel.
The day before a major ocean technology exhibition at the ExCel Centre in London, the skipper of a Swedish boat realised he had a crisis. After a five day steam to the UK, he noticed a problem with his propeller shaft which meant he would not be able to display his survey equipment at the Oceanology show to potential customers.
Director, Ruben Stephenson and a team of divers promptly drove to London that evening, entered the water and sorted out the problem with the propeller shaft with no fuss. “We are always on call for emergencies and relish helping people in a crisis around the clock,” he says.
Members of the survey company were able to exhibit at the show and show off how their kit worked in sea trials and the boat’s five day journey from Sweden to take part in the event wasn’t wasted.
