ACE Supplies Linear Winch System for Statoil’s Troll B
ACE Winches has supplied a complete rental Pull in Winch System including Wire Rope and HPU for Statoil’s Subsea Line Modification Project.
The company designed and engineered a Linear Winch System required for operation on the Troll B Platform, offshore Norway.
The rental package supplied incorporated an 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, ACE explained.
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.”
The ACE Linear Winch rental fleet currently consists of 100te and 200te systems.
