MacArtney Brings Out New Underwater Winch

MacArtney has introduced a new underwater winch to expand the MERMAC family of electrically driven winches.

The new MERMAC U from MacArtney is an underwater winch range designed for use within scientific, naval and homeland security applications.

MacArtney said it has integrated several features into this multipurpose, intelligent underwater winch to help ensure that the winch works optimally from the seabed.

Consisting of a winch fixed to a platform on the seabed, MERMAC U controls the deployment of oceanographic equipment by raising and lowering a buoy at pre-defined intervals and speeds and to set depths.

The MERMAC U is rated for deployment at depths from 500 meters up to 3,000 meters and comes with a control system for launching and retrieving as well as data collection system.
