ACE Winches Delivers Riser Solution for Buckskin Field

ACE Winches has delivered a new product for the installation and pull-in of two steel catenary risers (SCR) on the Buckskin deepwater development, located in the Gulf of Mexico.

The client required a significantly smaller riser pull-in equipment package than the traditional model to be incorporated into their existing framework on the main deck level on the Lucius spar platform, ACE said.

With limited deck space and extreme operating depths, the linear winch also required to have the capability of delivering 550 Tonnes vertical force.

ACE Winches provided the client with a solution offering a higher-line pull-to-weight ratio than conventional winches and equipped with a continuous pull feature allowing for a reduction in operational time.

ACE chief executive officer, Alfie Cheyne, said: “The limited deck space presented us with a challenge, but we overcame it with an innovative design delivering a high quality, safe and cost-effective SCR solution, helping our clients reduce cost and improve safety and efficiency; important factors in today’s industry climate.
