Rolls-Royce has won a contract to supply its 100th and 101st Launch and Recovery Systems (LARS). The contract signed with DOF Subsea, will see the latest two systems installed aboard the DOF Subsea Skandi Neptune.
Rolls-Royce Launch and Recovery Systems allow the deployment and recovery of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to a depth of 3,000m plus. The system has highly accurate active heave compensation to cope with severe weather and can automatically launch and recover a ROV to a given target depth and at a given target speed.
