If a human wants to discover the underwater world he has two choices. Either he finishes a diving course, where naturally he is in direct contact with the element of water, or he gets into a submarine and can explore the depths in comfort under atmospheric ambient pressure!
The advantages of a submarine are obvious. While a diver exposes his body to pressure, and therefore is set very real limits, a human in a submarine under natural atmospheric pressure can progress to depths that would otherwise be deadly.
Another advantage is the near limitless dwelling time underwater. This is the reason we had the Submarine Kreidesee Eurosub built!
DescriptionThe U-boat Kreidesee Eurosub is a submersible that can progress to depths of 250 meters. The concept of the submarine is one where two observers and the driver can fit comfortably. A large glass dome upwards and to the front, as well as 4 portholes to the side and down, allow for optimal views. The U-boat can be underwater for about 6 to 8 hours fully manned. During emergencies, up to 96 hours are possible.
Two lateral electrical motors (both 800 watt, and are maneuverable in 360 degrees) and a rear engine give the submarine extreme maneuverability and allow rides in strong currents. With technical equipment like a compass, GPS-navigation, sonar, depth gauge, radio, stereo, and a powerful spotlight system, the U-boat can also be used for search and rescue operations.
The U-boat Kreidesee Eurosub is stationed in Hemmoor on a special trailer and is operated by the watch of the diving base. It serves in the exploration of diving waters, as well as the search for missing divers and objects. Further responsibilities are the support of underwater expeditions and filming works, the supervision of underwater building operations, and rides for anyone!
The submarine already has its first expeditions behind it with success. Croatian authorities chartered it in 2009 for the identification of a shipwreck of the coast of Dubrovnik. The Guiseppe Garibaldi was able to be identified at a depth of 130 meters. The second expedition led the Norway in 2010; to locate a ship sunk during the war. The identification of the wreck at a depth of almost 75 meters by Norwegian authorities is still underway.
