C-Innovation picks Okeanus kit for Brazil ops

Okeanus has delivered two integrated, skid-mounted winches and A-Frame LARS to C-Innovation, in Brazil.


This custom deck equipment is for use by C-Innovation clients aboard two separate RSVs for CTD deployment at depths of up to 3,000 metres.

The 7 x 12’ skid-mounted LARS each feature an Okeanus DT-3025EHLWR slip ring winch that can hold 3,000 metres of .45” armored coax cable.

The A-Frame on each LARS have a safe working load of 4,000lbs., making them an ideal solution for CTD deployment in deeper waters.

“We have enjoyed a longstanding working relationship with C-Innovation, and we are delighted to provide them with more of our equipment,” according to Okeanus managing director Benton LeBlanc.

“We partner with our clients to better understand their specific requirements in deploying subsea assets safely and efficiently, and we are confident that both C-Innovation and their client will be pleased with their new deck equipment.”
