Kongsberg Evotec’s ROV E-LARS for Bourbon’s Vessel

Kongsberg Evotec, a fully owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, has signed an agreement with Bourbon Offshore Norway for the delivery of the E-LARS Launch and Recovery System for Remote Operated Vehicles (ROV).

The delivery will take place in December 2015. The system is to be installed on a new VARD 2-12 ARCTIC design AHTS vessel, which is developed for worldwide operations, including arctic regions, the company wrote.

Kongsberg Evotec has through the development of E-LARS focused on environmental factors and safety of the operator and the equipment, Kongsberg added.

To ensure safe and efficient ROV launch and recovery, the E-LARS control system provides the operator with continuous information about i.e. capacity utilisation, the amount of regenerated power, umbilical status and history. This supports the operator to utilise the ROV mission operational window in an efficient and very environmentally friendly manner.

“Kongsberg Evotec is to us a new supplier of launch and recovery systems for ROVs. The equipment fits well with the vessel’s dedicated hangar and operation profile. We have great expectations both of the equipment and of the further collaboration with Kongsberg Evotec,” says Bjørn Remøy, CEO of Bourbon Offshore Norway.

“We have for a long time had close dialogue with Bourbon Offshore Norway, where solutions and problems have been discussed in a constructive way. This has been vital for securing this contract,” says Kongsberg Evotec’s Senior Sales Manager, Handling Solutions, Jon Olav Kopperstad. “The trust given to Kongsberg Evotec by Bourbon Norway inspires, commits and creates a good platform for further collaboration.”
