    Briggs Marine beefs up diving services division

    Company News // July 17, 2017

    Briggs Marine Contractors in the UK 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, which was manufactured by Submarine Manufacturing Products Ltd (SMP), comes as Briggs experiences increased demand for safe, high quality and compact diving solutions.

    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 50m.

    The new system was immediately employed on an offshore renewables project, with teams of divers working around the clock in depths of up to 28m to facilitate replacement of an inter array cable.
