Submarine Technology Limited
Submarine Technology Limited (STL) is a consultancy, design, development and ‘one-off’ project implementation group, specialising in the sub-sea and offshore industries.
At OEEC 2023, STL will be promoting Neptune, their motion-compensated offshore personnel-access system/light crane. The system enables transfer of personnel or cargo from a vessel to a fixed offshore structure with full motion-compensation, so that all wave-induced motions are removed and the payload arrives at the target structure with no relative movement between them. Neptune is a stand-alone piece of equipment that can be installed on a suitable vessel and operates without requiring any vessel services or data, except for the optional use of ship-generated electrical power.
STL will also promote their Proteus LARS (Launch and Recovery System). Designed to be located on a vessel or offshore device, Proteus can safely deploy and recover a small vehicle (e.g. ROV or AUV), compensating for wave motion using automated optical tracking.
