Our winches vary from standard to complex subsea or umbilical winches, with components which are standardized and exchangeable.

The winch drum is also a custom made part for the required application. Our winches provide safe working load of 1 to 100 mT, holding force up to 200 mT, and nominal speedup to 100 m/min. The control functions of this equipment vary according to:

  • Class, such as DNV and BV
  • Safety devices for overload protection systems, such as AOPS or MOPS
  • Load limitation (rendering)
  • Passive or active heave compensation (AHC)
  • Constant tension (CT)
  • Man-riding functionality

Always the right solution

Should your offshore project be very specific, you can always ask us for a custom winch.
