The lead vessel of 2 new tugboats, 'Hawaii' has been delivered by J.T. Marine of Vancouver equipped with JonRie winches.
The new Hyak Tug is a 37 Meter 80 Ton Bollard Pull Line Haul ASD complete with a JonRie Series 200 Bow winch with a capacity of 150M of 60 mm line, a line pull of 5 Tons, a line speed of 20 M/m and a brake with capacity of 200 Tons with an independent capstan. The winch features JonRies Joystick feather speed control, Auto Render Block, fail safe brakes and Auto Abort System.
Her stern is complete with a JonRie Series 500 Double Drum Towing Winch with a capacity of 750M of 60 mm line, a line pull of 70 tons, a line speed of 25M/m with a brake capacity of 285 Tons. The Auxiliary Drum has a capacity to spool 550M of 50mm Hawser, a line pull of 50 Tons, a line speed of 30 M/m with a brake capacity of 285 Tons.
The winch features JonRie’s independent level wind Auto Abort System and gypsy head that can all be operated from the Pilot House. Both Drums come with JonRie’s Controlled Free Wheel system to feather line out at a rapid pace and feather back so the line will not jump out of the water. The vessel is a state-of – the-art design for good line of sight so after a tow is made up, say the manufacturers, there is never a need to be on the back deck until disconnect. The sister tug Washington will be delivered later this Fall.
