The building of the major elements of the Venator’s Launch and Recovery System was completed 26th November (2 weeks delayed) and has since been thoroughly tested. The target speed was set to a continuous 3 knots with no stops during deployment or recovery. During the test the system was operated at up to 5 knots with no problems. We are very happy with this achievement, but equally important is that the design is simple and robust with few sensors and moving parts. The system will now be moved to another location near Oslo where potential contractor customers and end users will be invited for demonstrations from mid January.
