LR5 manned submersible
Our manned submersible, the LR5, has been maintained, operated and upgraded by James Fisher for the last 25 years.
LR5 delivered submarine rescue services with the UK Royal Navy until the end of 2008 and is currently part of the full rescue capability provided to the Royal Australian Navy.
LR5 serves to retrieve sailors from stranded submarines and is capable of rescuing up to 16 people at a time. LR5 is as capable as ever, having recently undergone re-certification with Lloyd’s Register for a further 20 years of service.
