Launch & Recovery Systems (LARS)

Handling system design has been a big part of All Oceans’ business since their start-up in 1985, and the TMS product range is at the forefront of underwater mechanical handling technology as a sophisticated underwater winch / cable handling device.

2006 saw All Oceans deliver the first 6000m ROV LARS designed and manufactured in the UK. This complemented the delivery of a 6500m depth rated TMS in 2004 which puts All Oceans well and truly at the leading edge of all manner of Mechanical Handling Underwater solutions and technology.

All Oceans delivered a further 6000m LARS in 2008. This was a single lift package with a gross weight of 24Te including the ROV configured for “live boat” operations on a “soft” umbilical.
