ACE Winches said it has completed an order for Statoil for their subsea line modification project designed for use on the Troll B platform offshore Norway.
The Norwegian operator had required a rental Pull in Winch System including wire rope and HPU.
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.
Kjartan Kopren, ACE Winches, sales manager for Scandinavia said: “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.”
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.
