IHC Engineering Business to supply launch and recovery system to Canyon OffshoreIHC Engineering Business (EB), a part of IHC Merwede group, has been awarded a contract for the supply of a 35 tonne Launch and Recovery System (LARS) to Canyon Offshore Ltd (Canyon). The bespoke A-Frame system will be used to launch and recover a new build trenching ROV.

EB engineers have been designing and building launch and recovery systems for over 25 years. These have been used to handle a wide range of equipment from ROVs to the largest cable ploughs. All of the systems are designed to maximise productivity, provide a long and reliable service life and minimise through life operational costs by careful design and high quality construction.

This award will mark the second LARS that EB has built for Canyon, having previously supplied a 95 tonne SWL system for the i-Trencher, which was built in 2008.

Sales and Marketing Director, Toby Bailey comments on this award: "We are delighted to secure this order - the i-trencher handling system again demonstrated the reliability and performance of EB launch and recovery systems. We look forward to continuing to work closely with Canyon on this new project."

The new LARS will be able to launch and recover the 35 tonne vehicle in up to Sea State 5. The system will be designed over the coming months, before assembly and testing at EB's Port of Tyne support base for delivery in 2012.
