Now shipping – Poseidon Discovery
Now shipping – Poseidon Discovery Poseidon has developed the world’s first rebreather for recreational divers, Poseidon Discovery, which is now shipping to 60 countries.
With Poseidon Discovery, a technique based on recycling breathing gas, it is possible to stay under water for several hours with at max 40 metres. The Discovery is a fully automatic closed circuit rebreather in which two continuously calibrating oxygen sensors verify electronic settings during the dive.
“Rebreather diving for recreational divers is set to make a breakthrough all over the world. It should be light, safe and simple to dive for everyone. Poseidon Discovery easily allows recreational divers to stay under water at least three times as long as scuba gear. Now we are delighted to see the start of deliveries” says Kurt Sjöblom, Managing Director of Poseidon.
Following 25 years of research and development, Poseidon has put the brand new product in production. The development of Poseidon Discovery is the result of a Swedish-American joint venture, involving Dr Bill Stone, Dr Richard Pyle and Nigel Jones together with Poseidon Diving Systems AB.
The new Poseidon Discovery was launched at the DEMA exhibition in 2007 and the many advance orders have set the Swedish diving equipment company in major delivery focus.
