Global deck machinery specialist, ACE Winches has successfully delivered and engineered a back deck solution for Saipem. Working to a tight deadline of three and half weeks, ACE Winches worked in conjunction with Scantrol AS to supply a deck machinery solution which included an Active Heave Compensation winch and A-frame solution that will be used as an auxiliary deep water deployment system for subsea equipment.

The deck machinery equipment was engineered and manufactured at ACE Winches facilities in Aberdeenshire and was mobilised to Saipem for work scheduled for 2017 and beyond.

Increased operational time, safe handling and reduce risk of damage of subsea equipment are all important arguments of why Active Heave Compensation is important for subsea operations, especially in harsh weather conditions.

Scantrol has supplied AHC solutions to ACE Winches since 2011. “Our standardised components are adapted to the specifications from ACE. Our good working relationship has given us the opportunity to build up enough experience to make streamlined solutions for the clients, hence the short delivery time on the last project” explains Business Development Manager, Rolf Krogh Hjelmeland.

Richard Wilson, Chief Operations Officer, ACE Winches says, “Providing a solution for this major project was challenging within the tight timescales, however we overcame the challenge with a positive result. We have worked with Saipem previously and were pleased to have an opportunity to work with them again.”
