ACE Winches completes Linear Winch System for Statoil
ACE Winches has completed an order for Statoil, who required a rental Pull in Winch System including Wire Rope and HPU for their Subsea Line Modification Project. A Linear Winch System was designed and engineered for operation on the Troll B Platform, offshore Norway.
The rental package supplied incorporated a compact design and weight optimized linear winch, designed for use in land based shore pulls and offshore wire rope deployment and recovery operations. The model consists of a rigid outer framework housing grippers fitted to a travelling carriage arrangement. The grippers are designed to accommodate multiple wire rope diameters. Each carriage is actuated by two hydraulic cylinders mounted within an outer framework.
Kjartan Kopren, ACE Winches, Sales Manager Scandinavia stated,'Our engineering and project team worked on a bespoke solution together with Statoil's technical department. This project is a perfect example of ACE Winches being a turnkey solution provider and gave us the opportunity to showcase our engineering capabilities and services on the Troll B for Statoil.'
