In the presence of surveyors of Germanischer Lloyd Hamburg and Rotterdam, U-Boat Worx has performed a successful series of harbor and sea trials for the latest C-Quester 3 submersible.
A sequence of trial dives was performed over a period of two successive days. First in shallow water the stability and emergency tests were executed, which amongst other things included releasing the emergency drop weight, emergency buoy and manipulator arm. On the second day various trial dives were completed to the maximum depth.
The trials were performed in "de Grevelingen" a sea-arm of the North Sea. All dives were conducted in the presence of dive support vessel Panda.
The submersible is now ready to be shipped to the client, who will operate it from a private motor yacht.
