Launch and recovery systems

 

Any and every LARS to be adapted to the location and working conditions of the boat.

 

We design and build launch and recovery systems for the most demanding situations, basing our work on the functions to be complied with in order to attain maximum operativeness, productivity and safety of the equipment. Our enormous experience has allowed us to innovate in the design of LARS equipment, affording our clients improvements in their operations and keeping their equipment working in sea state 6 or more.

This is synonymous with greater work efficiency and greater productivity. We develop any LARS system: A-frames, telescopic and/or articulated arms, cranes, davits, etc. For all types of submersible and surface craft: ROVs, CTD Rosettes, torpedoes, sonars, plows, piston corers, submarines. Installed on different types of vessels: seismographic survey ships, mega-yachts, military and naval vessels, cable ships, oceanographic vessels, offshore submarine rescue craft, hydrographic vessels, etc.

They have trusted us:

                

During our operations, it is not allowed to fail. Solutions require inventiveness and technology as well as actions that bring results, which is why we need to have collaborators such as Ferri close at hand.
