Model XS-90 LARS

Quality A-frame and Crane Based LARS

The XS-90 LARS was developed by Subsea Innovation to be easily road transported throughout the world. The build is similar to the XW-90 LARS however the width is increased to 6.2m. The unit is a bolted construction containerised into a 40’ standard offshore spec container. 

Generally the construction of the hydraulically controlled swing frame complete with self fleeting sheave wheel ensures the umbilical is not damaged during high loadings in deep waters. The base frame is strengthened to avoid the need for large seafastening or expensive modifications to vessel decks. Installing all the hydraulic components in a single operating panel makes maintenance extremely easy. The design capacity is 45 Te design (15 Te SWL) @ 30 degrees side load with the possibility of increasing this by hydraulically retracting the boom during operation.
