ACE Winches, Scantrol Deliver AHC Solution to Saipem

Deck machinery specialist, ACE Winches has delivered and engineered a back deck solution for Saipem.

ACE Winches worked in conjunction with Scantrol to supply a deck machinery solution which included an Active Heave Compensation winch and A-frame solution that will be used as an auxiliary deep water deployment system for subsea equipment.

The deck machinery equipment was engineered and manufactured at ACE Winches facilities in Aberdeenshire and was mobilized to Saipem for work scheduled for 2017 and beyond.

Scantrol have supplied AHC solutions to ACE Winches since 2011. “Our standardized components are adapted to the specifications from ACE. Our good working relationship has given us the opportunity to build up enough experience to make streamlined solutions for the clients, hence the short delivery time on the last project” explains business development manager, Rolf Krogh Hjelmeland.

Richard Wilson, chief operations officer, ACE Winches said: “Providing a solution for this major project was challenging within the tight timescales, however we overcame the challenge with a positive result. We have worked with Saipem previously and were pleased to have an opportunity to work with them again.”

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
