JonRie Marine Winches commissioned its new Super Series 220 Double Drum Escort Winch currently installed on the Tug Patriot (new ASDs for Marine Towing of Tampa)

The Super Series 220 Double Drum Bow Winch was designed for a larger capacity rope. This concept used on the Panama Canal for many years as a redundant line tethered to the ship also acts as an Escort Bridle making the tug more stable in prop wash during long escorts. The Twin drums also afford a less loading on each rope under braking. Both drums feature JonRie’sActive Heave Compensation systems. All winches on the tug feature independent drives for each drum and JonRie’s standard foot pedal for hands free operation. Also featured on each drum is JonRie’sside light with dimmer Tension read out system.At the request of the owner the Tension Meters also include and adjustable alarm pilot light so when a preset tension is selected, when exceeded will alarm the master of an overload. The Winch has the capacity to spool 600’ of 9” Hawser, 18 Ton line pull and a line speed of 100 FPM.

On the Stern of the vessel is a JonRie Series 512 Towing Winch complete with independent drive level wind and independent driven gypsy head. All winches have an auto abort system and a backup 24 VDC system if power is lost on the tug. The Towing winch will be used for Emergency Towing if required during an Escort. The winch has the capacity or 2,100’ of 2.25” wire, a line pull of 50 tons and a line speed of 30 FPM. All controls, soft starter and HPU are the design and supply of JonRie.
