ACE Winches has successfully delivered one of the world’s largest chain winch packages for Heerema Marine Contractors for its new Aegir vessel.
Supporting the Ichthys LNG Project, offshore Northwest Australia, ACE Winches has engineered, designed, manufactured and commissioned a 200te twin Chainlifter Hydraulic package for Heerema. The chain winch package will be used to pull the heaviest chains ever installed by Heerema, with a diameter of 178mm.
ACE Winches also produced two 50te WLL twin Chainlifter Hydraulic winches along with a 576kW Containerised Safe Area Electric Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU) and two 76kW Containerised Safe Area Electric HPU’s. All equipment was engineered and designed by ACE Winches’ dedicated engineering and projects team and manufactured at the company’s global headquarters in Northeast Aberdeenshire before being transported across the world for commissioning.
