Briggs Marine Invests in New Diving Equipment

Briggs Marine Contractors has made a six-figure investment into its diving division’s capabilities with the purchase of a dual basket diver launch and recovery system (LARS).

The system was manufactured by Submarine Manufacturing Products (SMP). It has been built and maintained to International Marine Contractors Association (IMCA) guidelines and has been certified by Lloyds Register.

The SMP dual basket LARS allows the safe launch and recovery of up to two working divers and one rescue diver, in depths of up to 50 meters. The new system was immediately employed on an offshore renewables project, with teams of divers working around the clock in depths of up to 28 meters to facilitate replacement of an inter array cable.

Craig English, operations director Subsea Services at Briggs Marine, said: “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.
