Subsea Innovation, one of the world’s leading subsea equipment suppliers, is continuing to grow its service capability, following the successful refurbishment of a launch and recovery system (LARS) for a major offshore oil and gas contractor.
Already a key player in the manufacture of LARS and Tether Management Systems (TMS), as well as subsea sealing systems, pipeline repair systems and waterstop seals, Subsea Innovation is helping its clients to extend the life of their existing assets.
By using all of its industry and product experience, the company is offering refurbishment services to a variety of LARS and TMS’s manufactured by themselves or others.
In its most recent project, the Darlington based company undertook the complete strip down of the launch and recovery system at its new, purpose-built manufacturing facility. The LARS was originally manufactured by Subsea Innovation in 1999 and has been in active service since then, highlighting the longevity of the engineering and product design utilised. The workscope included detailed inspection, manufacture of new components, NDT and structural repair, shot blasting and painting, as well as extensive load testing.
The system, which will be used to deploy remotely operated vehicles for subsea work around the world, was turned around in under six weeks and delivered to the client on time.
