Providing pressure testing services
Tyne Subsea is a dedicated world-leading hyperbaric testing facility that operates six hyperbaric chambers.
Our chambers range in size and pressure ratings to provide a variety of sectors with the ability to meet specific testing requirements and to verify that products can work effectively in subsea conditions.
We offer a range of hyperbaric services; including our capabilities to simulate water depths down to 6,000 meters, to test components to -2˚C and to accommodate larger products in our newest deep water chamber, which has an internal diameter of 2.5 meters.
We not only offer pressure testing, but can also offer subsea research and third party certification to verify that products can function under high pressure.
What is hyperbaric testing?
Put simply, hyperbaric testing is the artificial simulation of water pressures to meet operational subsea service conditions with purpose built chambers.
Why do we need hyperbaric testing?
Hyperbaric testing is vital to validate a product design prior to it going into service, to ensure that it is fit for purpose, that it can function effectively, and that it can work safely, under the conditions it will be subjected to.

What our customers say
"Having a facility ‘on the doorstep’ is of significant benefit to us, logistically, but equally the capacity offered by multiple chambers means that projects can be accommodated when needed. The benefits, of course, are reduction in project timeframe and increased efficiency...."

of the earth's surface is covered by water with an average water depth of around 3,600m.
So we know that a significant amount of our global resources are deep underwater. Recognising this, industries are finding ways to safely and reliably operate in these environments.Learn more
Mitigating operational risk subsea and helping to solve the engineering problems of the future. Our hyperbaric research, test and certification service supports a diverse set of industries:
Developments like all electric, subsea systems need safe and reliable product, tested and qualified to industry standards to ensure no harm to people or the environment. We have extensive experience in testing subsea valves, actuators and other subsea components to guide and support your test requirements from start to finish.
Sustainable energy providers
The renewable arena is another vital part of our energy mix. Having significant experience in subsea, marine and offshore enables us to support, advise and translate and apply learnings to some of these newer technologies including tidal, wind and hydro electrics.
Our security forces
Research and testing in this area is of course crucial for safety and security. With the provision of multiple connection points to the chambers test piece can be operated and monitored and key data captured live on performance.
Geosciences and evolutionary biology
Earth sciences meeting biological, chemical and physical sciences creates significant and exciting research and development opportunities. We support long and short term research projects, academic study and skills development linking with industry to aid advancement.
Research has already taken us into new and exciting technology possibilities. We provide short and long term research opportunities to academia, industry and Government bodies.
