Rever Offshore has released a video of North Sea divers showing their appreciation for frontline workers as they prepare to spend a month in saturation.
The video shows the Rever Polaris team, stationed on the diving vessel at an offshore oil and gas field 175miles north-east of Aberdeen, taking part in the clap for carers.
Divers spend weeks in saturation chambers so that their bodies can be acclimatised to the intense pressure of the seabed.
The video shows two three-man teams heading into to the diving chambers on April 30th, where they will stay for around 28 days, as they carry out multiple work contracts at the bottom of the North Sea at depths of 112metres.
Oil and gas employees – themselves classed as key workers – have been among those keeping up the weekly tradition of clapping for NHS staff, carers and others on the frontline of the coronavirus fight.
The diving teams are expected to resurface at the end of this month.
Sharing the video, Rever said: “How often do we get to see divers on their way into a SAT diving chamber, where they’ll be based for the next week? And how often do we see them accompanied by the theme to “Rainbow”? We guarantee you’ll be whistling it all weekend.
“Yes, the team on the Rever Polaris are at it again, thanking the NHS in their own style, and encouraging those back onshore to stay safe.”
Last month, two Rever Polaris divers became a hit on social media after being pictured with a sign showing appreciation for the NHS 100metres below the North Sea at the Total-operated Jura field.
