A busy start to the new decade


OMS Swing UnitWe are experiencing a busy period of new orders for the private and commercial sector here at the factory.

During the spring of 2020, our team here at Ocean Marine Systems are building several of our larger traditional vertical retracting units for USBL and diver detection. We also have some of our new groundbreaking swing deployment designs with integral automatic doors currently in build.

All hoists are client-specific and under construction to Classification Society rules or MIL standards. They range in deployment depths from 1m to 3m (distance from the hull). With automatic retraction technology fitted, they can operate at speeds up to 6 knots. Each hoist comes complete with a custom-designed control system.

Exporting worldwide, we are unique in engineering and delivering custom deployment machines for almost any through-hull instrument.

During these times of COVID 19 our Factory Acceptance Trials (FAT) are often choreographed online via webcam. It requires a well organised team over several hours to carry out a successful set of tests. The OMS team is dynamic and always ready to adapt. #OMS #OMSltd #surveyhoist #securityhoist #marinesecurity #sonar #diverdetectionsonar #diverdetection #OMShoist #OMSdeployment ...

Deploying sonar and other ships survey and defence instrumentation, is simple and reliable with OMS deployment machines. Construction class approved, low magnetic options and with built in hull doors, our solutions are the best available. Survey ship, Naval vessel or large private constructions all use OMS deployment machines. #OMS #OMSltd #Marinesurvey #marinesurveyor #sonar #marinesecurity #sonarhoist #subseaengineering #offshoreengineering ...
