Okeanus Boosts Rental Portfolio

Okeanus Science and Technology (Okeanus) has strengthened its fleet of oceanographic and marine scientific rental equipment, with the addition of three types of DT Marine winches.

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, said Okeanus in a press release.

With three horsepower options available for rental (25, 50 or 125 hp), Okeanus’ selection of winches feature line pull capacities ranging from 4,000 to 20,000 pounds. The 25 and 50 hp winches, typically included in rental packages with smaller equipment, can be spooled with 2,000 m and 6,000 m of 1Ž2-inch line respectively, while the 125 hp model can be spooled with 6,000 m of .680-inch line for dependable towing and launch of large pieces of equipment.

According to Okeanus, 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.

“We at Okeanus are pleased to add this fleet of DT Marine winches to our equipment rental catalog as another way to continue to serve the subsea and oceanographic research and survey markets,” said Benton LeBlanc, Vice President and General Manager of Okeanus. “By providing all critical components necessary for the successful launch and recovery of underwater assets, Okeanus creates value for its customers from the deck to the seafloor by giving them the ability to lease these assets rather than having to purchase them.”
