Improve the safety and handling of your expensive equipment and
valuable personnel. The Imenco latch will increase overall safety and ease deployment and recovery of small to medium sized ROV’s.The lock-latch enables easy attachment/detachment to the cable using it’s unique cable entrance door solution.
The Imenco ROV latches are made from Aluminium 6082T6 and stainless S165M steel. The unique cable door and release mechanism makes it very easy to use. It will self-release in water by attaching a medium sized ”Grimsby float” to the release lever, or by simply using a release line.
The latch unit will attach to its accompanying termination bullet sliding on the umbilical cable even down to a 30º angle above the horizonontal. Feedback from our customers is very good, where they all point out the advances this unit gives compared to other launch/recovery scenarios using a live-boating ROV.
The unit may also be used for other applications, where there is a messenger line attached. The latches ranges from 0,5 to 12 tons WLL. It is designed according to DnV rules for Certification of Lifting appliances. The latch and termination bullet are delivered as certified pairs to
avoid any mismatch between the two. Termination bullets can be delivered whole or split. To date these units are used on Sub-Atlantic, Argus Remote Systems, Sutec Sea Owl, Sea Twin, Sperre Subfighter – and Ocean Modules ROV’s.
