Machined Octagon for Launch & Recovery System

The Launch and Recovery System (L&RS) was developed by SC Innovation for the RNLI to transport their Shannon class lifeboats.  It facilitates the quick, efficient and safe, launch and recovery of the lifeboats from unstable beaches.

Blackhill Engineering were responsible for manufacturing key components for the L&RS.  Our machining capability enabled us to produce the L&RS components to extremely tight tolerances while adhering to stringent Quality demands and efficient deliveries.  This kept the Project Schedule on time and within budget.

Paul Buckland, SC Innovation Production Manager said “The level of quality and capabilities of Blackhill Engineering have enabled us to ensure on time delivery of the vehicles to the RNLI.  This has undoubtedly meant that the RNLI can deploy the systems in line with their plan.”
