Namaka Subsea, who provide key technical and operational support to clients within the subsea industry, have formalised their joint venture with Edinburgh based pharmaceutical and medical equipment supplier Clinical Direct. The signing of this memorandum of understanding will allow contractors and operators working globally within the diving industry to benefit from an even wider range of products and services.
In addition to their core offering, services now include enhanced medical audits, medical equipment sales, pharmaceutical supply lines and accredited clinical training courses.
Lee Duncan, Namaka Subsea’s Managing Director, said: “We have had a working relationship with Clinical Direct for several years and have always been impressed with their team’s proactive approach and professionalism. The next logical step therefore was always to formalise our partnership.”
One key development has been the new fully compliant but enhanced DMAC 15 kit. Dubbed “the kit that’s been designed by medics, for medics”, it has been incredibly well received. Clients are now able to access this upgraded kit, not only on a standard purchase, but also on a very cost-effective, fully maintained rental basis. This will suit many in the industry, including those involved in shorter projects.
Having these new services available will give clients the assurance that their kits are maintained, kept up to date and are fully compliant with the very latest DMAC 15 rev 4 standards, as set by the Diving Medical Advisory Committee.
Namaka Subsea have utilised the paramedic and clinical trainers at Clinical Direct to continue to develop their cutting-edge applications for the diving industry. Key courses still focus on the protection and care of offshore divers and personnel and now include CPD-approved clinical skills training too.
Safety and care are always at the forefront of Namaka Subsea’s thinking when carrying out projects, and the company wants these new courses and products to help enhance the safety and care provided across the industry in general.
Injuries in hostile environments are potentially catastrophic, and can even be a matter of life or death. Namaka Subsea have used their software engineering expertise to develop a new, state-of-the-art chamber monitoring system. This system is a viable alternative to the complex, bulky and very expensive systems on the market at the moment, and is a very cost effective option.
