TMT Emergency Recovery Tool

TMT Emergency Recovery Tool

The TMT Emergency Recovery (ER) tool is a dual-use lifting device for recovering a Typhoon ROV in the event of a severed tether or both the TMS and the ROV in the event of a LARS winch failure.

The ER tool can be either:

  • Run down the TMS umbilical, installed around the umbilical.
  • Installed directly onto the ROV tether bullet by a second ROV.

The ER tool is comprised of two (2) properly rated padeyes fixed to opposite sides of a hollow carbon steel body. The body of the tool is designed to fit around a lift point Bullet which is a cylindrical lifting point fitted to both the TMS and the ROV.

TMT can configure the ER tool to suit the customer requirements, or design similar specialised lifting tools.
