Subsea Innovation Workshop Humming
Launch and recovery systems (LARS) specialist Subsea Innovation, part of Tekmar Group, said its workshop is currently busy with five systems in progress and soon to be dispatched.
In the previous 12 months the company has delivered a range of new and refurbished systems, it said.
The projects were carried out by Subsea Innovation’s teams of engineers and technicians in Darlington, UK. The 40,000 square-foot facility offers three work bays, each 42 meters in length and up to 24 meters in width, sized for larger equipment and overhead craneage up to 50 metric tons.
Within Subsea Innovation’s offer to provide both new and refurbished systems, the ability to prolong the life of assets through refurbishment and maintenance services is important in the industry to help client’s equipment operate for longer before being replaced. Dave Thompson, Managing Director of Subsea Innovation, said, “In a climate which has seen many smaller companies going out of business our services can be an absolute life saver for contractors using aging and/or unsupported kit.”
He continued, “Through being primarily an engineering design company, the company can re-engineer components enabling to repurpose or add functionality, often cheaper than OEMs. We are also often engaged in modifying customers equipment.”
