Rope tensioner (AHTS)
Single, twin or triple rollers. Designed to allow awkward and heavy objects such as chains, anchors, and hoses to be hauled onboard without causing excessive damage to the stern.
The rope tensioner is designed to give a back-tension in the synthetic rope line while it is being transferred from a storage drum to a working drum or from the quay side. The tension can be adjusted up to 50 tonnes. When not in use the sheaves can be stored and the rest of the equipment will be flush with the deck. The rope tensioner is powered through the main hydraulic system.
