Handling objects and equipment offshore, whether that is on the deck of a vessel or deploying into the ocean, presents a particular range of challenges and required considerations to ensure practical, usable solutions. We have a long history of developing and manufacturing equipment of this type and provide robust solutions to a wide range of projects.
The MintMech 5t DNV launch and recovery system (LARS) is an elegantly engineered solution that combines ease-of-use with high performance. The self-erecting mast is deployed by ‘walking’ the main cylinders between dedicated fore and aft ram lugs, allowing the mast to fully lower backwards for transport and to provide ease of access to the crownbeam mounted handling winch and primary sheave arrangement. When the MintMech LARS is folded for transport, it neatly fits a high-cube ISO container gauge allowing straight-forward top-stack sea freight and standard road transport.
