Burntisland-based Briggs Marine Contractors has deployed a recently purchased dual basket diver Launch and Recovery System (LARS) on an offshore renewables project.

Teams of divers worked around the clock in depths of up to 28m to facilitate a replacement of an inter-array cable on an offshore wind farm, the company said.

The system, which was manufactured by Submarine Manufacturing Products Ltd (SMP), has been built and maintained to International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) guidelines and has been certified by Lloyd’s Register.

The SMP dual basket LARS allows the launch and recovery of up to two working divers and one rescue diver, in depths of up to 50m.

“As a company which is committed to providing safe, fit-for-purpose solutions, the LARS is a welcome addition to our fleet of equipment. Its compact nature allows for mobilisation on smaller, more cost-effective vessels, without compromising safety,” Craig English, Operations Director – Subsea Services at Briggs Marine, said.

“The equipment enhances the modular dive spreads owned and operated by Briggs, and means that bespoke solutions can be rapidly prepared according to each client’s specific requirements; from quayside, nearshore or offshore solutions, domestically or abroad.”
