MacArtney completed its order of research vessel
MacArtney has finished its order of a launch and recovery (LARS) system for Taiwan National University, the fifth Ocean Research Vessel (ORV) in the Asia Pacific region to date.
For the new vessel R / V New Ocean Researcher 1, including slip rings, cables and docking heads, MacArtney Asia Pacific provided the complete launch and recovery system solution.
On July 21, 2020, the 1,000 GT RV was completed.
The CSBC Corporation, which designed the ship for Taiwan National University end-users, is behind ORV 1. CSBC, which owns two shipyards, is Taiwan 's largest shipbuilding company.
Now that ORV 1 has passed its flying colour Sea Acceptance Test (SAT), researchers at the country's national university will benefit from a highly advanced level of technology that involves no less than three MERMAC LARS systems from MacArtney.
