ODIM awarded LARS contractODIM ASA has been awarded a contract for the delivery of a launch and recovery system (LARS) for ROVs.

The ODIM LARS is an automated launch and recovery system for remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) which can operate in water depths down to 4000 metres.

"With 56 such systems sold, we've secured a solid position in the most demanding and advanced sector of this market," says Mr Kopperstad. "Depending on vessel type and size, many traditional launch and recovery systems are restricted in their ability to function in poor weather. The ODIM LARS utilises active heave compensation to operate in very tough weather conditions, and feedback from customers indicates that it extends the operational window substantially."
