Assodivers a Greek-based underwater contractor has taken delivery of two MERMAC winches from MacArtney: one 19.5 ton AHC (active heave compensation) winch and one 6 ton umbilical winch.
These winches form part of a project relating to Denmark’s biggest offshore wind farm Kriegers Flak located in a shallow area in the Baltic Sea between Denmark, Sweden and Germany.
The AHC winch is intended to relocate stones from the seafloor, and the umbilical winch is to be used for pulling a cable plough. Electric AHC winch solutions are often preferred for ROV systems and for handling equipment that is to operate near or on the seabed.
“This is not the first time we’ve placed an order with MacArtney. Our business relations go further back and emphasize the fact that we always rest assured to be granted superior customer service and product quality on the part of MacArtney,” said Sarantos Konstantatos, procurement officer, Assodivers Underwater Contractors.
