Kongsberg’s ROV control system for Bourbon Offshore’s AHTS

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

According to Kongsberg Maritime, 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.

Describing the E-LARS control system, Kongsberg says it provides the operator with continuous information such as capacity utilisation, the amount of regenerated power, umbilical status and history.

“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.”
