MacArtney’s Winch for RSI
Rockland Scientific Inc. (RSI), has ordered a small instrumentation winch from the MacArtney Underwater Technology Group (MacArtney) at Ocean Business 2015.
The winch system is specifically designed for use with the RSI VMP-250 vertical turbulence profiler.
MacArtney and RSI delivered the first VMP-250 ‘turn-key’ system, including winch in December 2014, commissioned by Dr. Daniele Iudicone from Stazione Zoologica Anton Dohrn in Naples, Italy.
The second winch system has now been ordered by RSI and it’s estimated for delivery to RSI in May 2015.
“MacArtney’s help in producing a winch system that is optimized for work with our VMP-250 is a benefit for our customers, because it reduces the operational uncertainty of the field work. It also simplifies the logistics of deliveries to our European customers, because the winches are produced in Denmark,” says Jeremy Hancyk, RSI’s Director of Business Development.
