The Blue Abyss pool, which is set to become the deepest of its kind in the world, is changing location again. This time Cornwall is being considered.


There probably aren’t too many people in the diving community who haven’t heard about the super-investment that is the Blue Abyss swimming pool. Information about the creation of the facility has been around for years, but it seems that the investment is still struggling with some problems. As a result, once again we hear about a change of location and the pool of the future still exists only in visualisations.

The world's deepest swimming pool concept According to initial announcements, the futuristic diving pool was to be located in the county of Essex or KentIt was located somewhere near London. In time, however, it turned out that the construction was moved further north, to the Merseyside counties in the Liverpool area. Today we have another twist on the final location of the facility. The latest information is that the final Blue Abyss is to be built in Cornwall, the most south-western county in England. Will it happen? Time will tell.

We are planning a globally unique facility with a wide range of potential uses. It will encompass many of the industries for which Cornwall and the South West is renowned. Blue Abyss will be a huge research asset in aviation, marine energy, underwater robotics, human physiology, defence, leisure and marine industries. It will also become a fantastic education centre for children and students. Cornwall already feels like our natural home and we are delighted to have received such a warm response said John Vickers, CEO of Blue Abyss

Plans

What the final shape and all the parameters of the Blue Abyss pool will be is impossible to predict today. According to the announcements, this unusual facility will contain 35 thousand m³ of water and offer the possibility of immersion to a depth of 50 metres. If this were to happen, it would become the deepest pool in the world. Currently, the Polish one, which was built in Mszczonów DeepspotIt was built in Mszczonów, near Warsaw.

What undoubtedly sets the Blue Abyss pool apart from similar facilities is its focus on branches such as professional diving, testing and research into the development of ROVs and AUVs, as well as work on space projects. Of course, there will also be room for recreational and technical divers. The pool will be widely available for training purposes and will also have a mission to promote diving as a sport. Everything will also be based on modern facilities that meet the highest standards.

The complex consisting of a diving pool is to include such installations as a hyperbaric chamber or a simulator allowing to create a state of weightlessness. It is required for projects related to e.g. the exploration of the Moon and Mars. A hotel with 120 rooms, six lecture theatres and a canteen will complete the complex.

The Blue Abyss Pool is intended to be the largest training facility for recreational divers, technical divers, freedivers and professional divers in the world. Given the excellent transport links to the British Isles, there is sure to be no shortage of people willing to visit.

Interestingly, apart from all kinds of divers and lovers of underwater activities, the pool is to be used for training purposes by the European Space Agency (ESA ). The estimated cost of construction of the facilities is GBP 150 million.
