The pressure hull consisting of six spherical compartments has been designed for
600m (2000ft) operating depth, a figure which could be extended up to 900m (3000ft).
The forward compartment is the command modul carrying the two pilots and one navigator.
The central sphere is used as instrumentation module, diverlockout compartment,
or transfer- or rescue chamber. It can be pressurized to 30 bar in the lockout mode
and carry 5-6 saturation divers. The rear sphere is the engine room containing all
For highly dedicated offshore and deep sea operations Ocean Submarine provides a
tailor made diving solution that easily resists up till 90 bars of water pressure
giving a diving platform up to 3.000 feet. To achieve that, our deep going NEYK has
an extra pressure body consisting of six spherical interlinked compartments. The
deep going version of the NEYK can be built completely custom made to meet the most
demanding specifications. Its remarkable manoeuvrability is another main asset of
this compact but highly dedicated underwater vessel.
The deep going NEYK
by Ocean Submarine for offshore and scientific use has a multihull configuration.
The outer hull provides the low drag shape of the vessel and stores the mechanical
controls for diving fins, rudders and bow and aft thrusters. Also the propulsion
pots are attached to the outer hull.
The inner hull consists of six interlinked spherical, fully pressurised domes. Three
of these (from the rear to the front) have fixed functions such as storage space
for oxygen and
air control, main engine room and command centre for the navigator and the two pilots.
The other three spheres can be used for dedicated tasks.
The vessel can be provided with a diving chamber with a hatch to the outside of the
sub that can accompany up to eight divers at a time. The outside hatch can also connect
platform for maintenance issues or act as a rescue hatch.
The NEYK can stay actively in one place
by the use of two extra vertical thrusters placed in the dome on top of te tower
that can give up and downforce. It can do this completely computerised.
The deep going heavy duty version of NEYK is highly impact resistant what makes it
a rugged versatile under water platform for any offshore tasks and scientific and
or historical exploration. The vessel can be provided with a diving chamber with
a hatch to the outside of the submarine that is capable of accompany eight divers
at a time. The outside exterior hatch can also be connected with another platform
for maintenance issues or it
can act as a rescue hatch.The other large sphere can be used for actual research
or living quarters. The sphere in the bow can be equipped with a second large acrylate
dome for an excellent view. Here one or two operators can work a hydraulic arm or
other specific equipment. An optional auxiliary under fuselage can contain extra
diesel tanks, auxiliary battery packs or special equipment.
