Dynacon and Scantrol Form AHC Partnership

Launch & Recovery Systems (LARS) manufacturer Dynacon, a Forum Energy Technologies business line, has joined forces with supplier of active heave compensation (AHC) control systems Scantrol to offer AHC functionality to new and existing customers.

Texas-based Dynacon has supplied over 250 ROV LARS Systems and almost 500 ROV Winch Systems.

Scantrol is said to have supplied more than 1,000 vessels worldwide with its active heave compensation system.

“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,” remarked Mark Brookes, vice president Products and Services at Forum Energy Technologies.

Scantrol is excited to work with the world’s leading manufacturer of LARS systems. 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,” explains Rolf Krogh Hjelmeland, business development manager for AHC at Scantrol.

The companies are excited to make this solution available for new and existing clients. Many existing Dynacon systems can be retrofitted to have AHC with little or no adjustment.
