Diving Bell Handling Systems

Parkburn Precision Handling Systems is a quality worldwide provider of DSV diving bell handling systems. Since receiving its market launch contract in 2007, Parkburn has been supplying robust, reliable and technically advanced, packages of fully class certified handling systems and equipment.

The Parkburn diving bell handling systems designed and manufactured to date have been specifically designed to suit each vessel, the bell system(s) to be handled and each client’s particular requirements, across all system constituents, including controls, instrumentation and 3rd party system interfaces.

When adding this engineering expertise to our in-house testing, on-site installation, commissioning and through life system support services, the Parkburn envelope of design, manufacture, mobilisation and support provides its clients a true “turnkey” system package.
