Equipment : Launch and Recovery System

Film-Ocean’s launch and recovery system (LARS) only requires a standard plant air feed. This is used to supply an air to hydraulic convertor and an air driven winch. The hydraulic pressure drives the two rams, which controls the boom in and out operation of the A-Frame.

The launch and recovery system is assembled manually, secured to the deck with water tanks and additional strapping if required but no welding is necessary. The LARS is therefore completely Ex rated and eliminates all risk of a spark potential source. The complete assembly process, including integration of the winch takes approximately one hour.
