British advanced maritime technology business SubSea Craft and naval architects Bar Technologies have entered into a new five-year contract to further develop a new type of submersible diver delivery vessel for defence applications.

As part of the deal, SubSea Craft will co-locate with Bar Technologies, moving production facilities from Havant to the Camber in Portsmouth. The partners said the relocation will enable efficient water testing of new vessel designs.

Subsea Craft CEO Scott Verney said the move comes as the first submersible is in the final stage of fit-out and thus nearing completion.
