Render Recovery Winch 2.0

Published in category: Harbour & Terminal

Damen has upgraded its Render Recovery Winch. The winch is a proven system to support offshore towing and escort operations in even the toughest of conditions.

It works by preventing the peak loads that can occur in the towing wire in rough conditions. This is accomplished by rendering speeds of up to 80 m/min with line force of 110 tonnes and recovery speeds of up 40 m/min with a line force of 30 tonnes. Damen Manager Design and Proposal Tugs, Erik van Schaik, says of the development, “We succeeded in our goal to create a more simple, less expensive double drum winch system with a better human interface and an easy to install, less expensive optional rendering/recovery functionality.”
