Phoenix is pleased to announce that they have been contracted by the Spanish Navy to provide a Submarine Emergency Ventilation and Decompression System (SEVDS).

SEVDS is a rapidly transportable (via air, land, and sea) system that provides breathing air to disabled submarines to extend life on board while awaiting rescue and, if necessary, can be used to reduce internal submarine pressure to reduce hyperbaric risks to surviving personnel. SEVDS is capable to a depth of 600 meters (2,000 feet) and can be connected to the submarine by divers or remotely operated vehicles (ROVs).

Phoenix has been supplying complete rescue and intervention solutions specifically tailored to each nation’s submarine force requirements for over 17 years, including rescue vehicles and chambers, Transfer Under Pressure (TUP) systems, Emergency Life Support System (ELSS) pods, ROVs, and SEVDS. Phoenix has completed more submarine rescue and intervention air mobilizations than any company in the world and, with the US Navy, was the only company to provide rescue systems in response to the missing ARA SAN JUAN submarine.

Commenting on this award, Phoenix President Patrick Keenan, stated, “We are honored that the Spanish Navy has entrusted Phoenix to provide them with our SEVDS to enhance their submarine rescue capabilities. We will deliver SEVDS as a fully functional system on time and within budget.”
