UK-based Briggs Marine Contractors has made a six-figure investment into its diving division’s capabilities with the acquisition of a dual-basket diver launch and recovery system (LARS).
The system, which was manufactured by Submarine Manufacturing & Products (SMP), comes as Briggs experiences increased demand for safe, high quality and compact diving solutions.
It has been built and maintained to International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) guidelines and certified by Lloyd’s Register.
The SMP dual-basket LARS allows the safe launch and recovery of up to two working divers and one rescue diver, in depths of up to 50m.
The new system was immediately employed on an offshore renewables project, with teams of divers working around the clock in depths of up to 28m to facilitate replacement of an inter array cable.
