Okeanus Science and Technology added three types of DT Marine winches to its fleet of oceanographic and marine scientific rental equipment.
The winches can be outfitted with various types of cable and synthetic rope to perform nearly any job requiring the launch and recovery of subsea equipment and assets.
With three horsepower options available for rental (25, 50 or 125 hp), Okeanus’ selection of winches feature line pull capacities ranging from 4000 to 20,000 pounds. The 25 and 50 hp winches, typically included in rental packages with smaller equipment, can be spooled with 2000m and 6000m of 1Ž2 in. line respectively, while the 125 hp model can be spooled with 6000m of .680-inch line for dependable towing and launch of large pieces of equipment.
Each model is highly reliable and simple to operate, and can be outfitted with a variety of coaxial cable, wire rope or synthetic rope to tow survey equipment or perform sampling operations. Winches are available for rental individually or as part of one of Okeanus’ customized Launch and Recovery packages, which includes an accompanying A-Frame, hydraulic power unit (HPU), hydraulic hose and valve kit, and appropriately sized block to match the cable type in use. A launch and recovery equipment rental package can be tailored to suit nearly any project’s specifications.
