Plan for ????10m hyperbaric chamber

The BBC reports of a multi-million pound plan to build the world’s largest and "deepest" pressure test chamber by Aberdeen’s National Hyperbaric Centre.

The project, costing up to £10m, would allow the testing of sub-sea equipment to the equivalent of three miles down.

The centre treats medical and diving emergency patients, carries out studies on topics such as a climate change and tests offshore equipment.

NHC managing director David Smith says that this is aimed at keeping Aberdeen at the forefront of sub-sea technology by providing a facility to attract business from around the world.
