Myton Law advises Mimir Marine on diver decompression chamber contract

Yorkshire specialist shipping, rail and transport law firm Myton Law has advised Hull-based Mimir Marine on a contract for the urgent supply of a port-side hyperbaric reception facility to Baku, Azerbaijan.

The 80-ton life support chamber complex, rated for a depth of 300 metres, provides a shore based safe-haven for the controlled decompression of deep-sea divers. Developed by Mimir Marine in Hull, the unit is suitable for multi-day decompression of up to 24 divers.

The unit was dispatched by Mimir Marine for urgent delivery after damage to an existing facility at Baku, the capital of Azerbaijan, which is located on the Caspian Sea. It was air lifted via East Midlands Airport on board an Antonov 124 airplane designed in Ukraine for heavy cargo. The equipment arrived in Baku within 12 hours of leaving the UK.

Myton Law’s John Habergham commented: “Myton Law was delighted to advise Mimir Marine against tight deadlines on such a complex, multi-faceted contract in negotiation with a major oil and gas company for this urgently-required, high value kit.”
