TMT Emergency Recovery Tool

The TMT Emergency Recovery Tool (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.

FET and Subsea Innovations bullets supported

Corrosion resistant materials

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 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.
