Kongsberg Evotec of Norway, a fully owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, Norway, reports it has entered into an agreement with CSSC Huangpu Shipyard in Guangzhou, China, for the delivery of two ROV launch and recovery systems.
The contract includes the first delivery of the recently patented K-LARS port frame solution, in addition to a tried and tested moon pool LARS. Both are scheduled for delivery in June 2016 and will be installed on board Singapore-based Jumeirah Offshore’s advanced new diving support vessel.
“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,” said Torkjell Ringstad, vice president of handling solutions at Kongsberg Maritime.
