Subsea Innovation overhauls ROV launch system

Offshore staff

DARLINGTON, UK – Subsea Innovation has refurbished a launch and recovery system (LARS) for an unnamed offshore oil and gas contractor.

This involved a complete strip down of system, built in 1999, at the company’s new manufacturing facility in northeast England.

The work scope included detailed inspection, manufacture of new components, non-destructive testing and structural repair, shot blasting and painting, and extensive load testing.

The refurbished LARS will be used to deploy ROVS on global assignments.
