ACE Winches Grabs Its Second Hebron Contract

ACE Winches has been awarded a six-figure contract with an operator to support in connecting the Hebron gravity based structure (GBS) and topsides.

The project will see ACE Winches supply hydraulic drum winch packages for the deep-water Hebron oil field located off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador in Canada, working at depths of 95m.

The contract will include all winches, ancillary equipment and skilled personnel for the project.

ACE Winches will provide ACE 40 tonne WLL hydraulic drum winches, two ACE 12.5 tonne WLL hydraulic drum winches, a dedicated diesel hydraulic power unit for each winch and running line monitors to provide line and load monitoring.

Alfie Cheyne, CEO, ACE Winches said: “We are thrilled to have been awarded this contract and look forward to working closely with our client in the coming months. ACE Winches has a successful track-record of projects in the region and we look forward to building on this success with the Hebron project.

The contract marks further work on the Hebron project for the company. In 2014 the company supplied a range of winches for use in the dry dock to tension the installation as it transitioned from dry dock into open water. The winches were then used to keep the GBS in position during the manoeuvre process.
