Secondary and storage winches (AHTS)
Large storage capacity and high pulling force. We are a leader in very large anchor handling / towing winches, the heart of an AHTS. Our winches and control winch system are suited to all sizes of anchor handlers, and are tailored your specific vessel and its operations.
The secondary winches combine large storage capacity of wire and rope with higher pulling force. The secondary winches can be used to transfer wire and rope to other winches while maintaining a solid back-tension and thus enabling a higher force used on the wire and rope during deployment. As the main purpose is storing and transfers of wire and rope the pulling capacity is normally between 120 - 210 tonnes. Storage winches may be located above the main winch or below deck. These winches have a large capacity for storing wire. As the main purpose is storing and transfers of wire the pulling capacity is normally between 10 - 60 tonnes.
