Evotec to provide LARS for newbuild DSV

Offshore staff

KONGSBERG, Norway – Kongsberg Evotec has agreed to supply two ROV launch and recovery systems (LARS) to the CSSC Huangpu Shipyard, Guangzhou, China, for installation on Jumeirah Offshore’s newbuild diving support vessel.

The contract includes the first delivery of the recently patented K-LARS port frame solution, in addition to a second moonpool LARS system. Both are scheduled for delivery in June 2016.

Kongsberg Evotec’s LARS features accurate heave compensation with a minimum of power use. The control system gives continuous information about capacity utilization, amount of regenerated power, umbilical status, and history, among other things, said Evotec.

“Our newly patented K-LARS system, where both ROV hangar door and A frame is integrated, fits perfectly for the design of Jumeirah Offshore’s new vessel and many other DSVs,” says Torkjell Ringstad, vice president Handling Solutions, Kongsberg Maritime AS. “We’re pleased to have won the first bid for our latest patented LARS technology, with support from Skipsteknisk, who we have collaborated with on seismic vessel projects in the past.”
