Hydramec & Scantrol Provide Equipment for Endurance

20.04.2022
Hydramec and Scantrol are honoured to have worked together once again to supply bespoke subsea winches to facilitate the Endurance22 expedition. Hydramec provided the expedition with two 25000m winches with 3.5mm fibre optic cable. The fibre optic cable would be tethered to the autonomous unmanned vehicle (AUV) to gather real-time data during the ship's survey. Without this type of cable, the crew would have had to bring the AUV back to the vessel to see the images.

The retrofit allows the customer, a Japanese marine science company, to continue working in tough weather conditions by increasing operational time of the vessel and reducing the risk of damage to the system. First AHC upgrade of Leopard ROV LARS – When our partner in the UK, Hydramec,got a request from Saab Seaeye to upgrade an existing Launch & Recovery system,Scantrol was contacted to supply the AHC controls. Even though we have done several systems together in the past, this was the first time an upgrade of a Leopard ROV LARS system has been carried out, explains senior design engineer Rolf Krogh Hjelmeland, re- sponsible for the offshore segment. The project was carried out in Japan in May where Hydramec and Scantrol took up the task of retro fitting Active heave compensa-tion to an existing LARS 1055, a 3000 meter rated Leopard ROV Launch and recovery system. Testing and research was done at the Hydramec facilities to find the optimal and most cost effective way to perform the upgrade of the LARS systems.
