Dynacon, Scantrol Partner to Provide Active Heave Compensation

A launch and recovery systems (LARS) manufacturer has teamed up with a supplier of active heave compensation (AHC) control systems to offer AHC functionality.

Dynacon, a Texas-based business line Forum Energy Technologies, Inc., is a manufacturer of handling systems for remote operational vehicles (ROV) and has supplied more than 250 ROV LARS Systems and almost 500 ROV winch systems. Scantrol is an independent supplier of control systems and has specialized in AHC. More than 1,000 vessels worldwide are deployed with a Scantrol system onboard.
Together, the companies will offer an AHC solution to new and existing customers.
As the industry continues to evolve, with increased emphasis on operational risk mitigation and value creation, AHC functionality is fast becoming a standard requirement.
"We evaluated the marketplace for available and compatible systems, and are very happy to have put an agreement in place with Scantrol as our preferred provider and partner," said Mark Brookes, Vice President Products and Services at Forum Energy Technologies.
"From our experience we know that the client can operate more cost-efficiently when integrating this functionality by increasing the weather window, reducing the damage of equipment and the burden of the ROV crew," said Rolf Krogh Hjelmeland, Business Development Manager for AHC at Scantrol.
Dynacon and Scantrol will make this solution available for new and existing clients. Many existing Dynacon systems can be retrofitted to have AHC with little or no adjustment.
