Caley Winch and A-frame Systems for HHI Oceanographic RV

(Press Release)
Friday, May 25, 2012

Offshore handling systems specialist, Caley Ocean Systems has been awarded a contract to supply oceanographic winches and A-frame systems to Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) for a new oceanographic research vessel.
The state-of-the-art, ocean-going, vessel is capable of surveying to the full ocean depth (10,000m), using advanced exploration capabilities. Caley is providing bespoke oceanographic winches designed to handle high tension, heavy loads, featuring 'SMART' control systems for fully active heave compensation, and variable frequency drives. Also included is a Conductivity, Temperature, and Depth (CTD) Rosette handling system with in-built motion compensation to cancel out the roll and pitch of the ship, significantly reducing the swaying of the CTD system.
The vessel will feature high performance, stern and side Caley A-Frame systems for seabed drilling and coring equipment. Given the tight project timescale, Caley is working in partnership with its long-term Korean agent and sub-contractor on the manufacture of the A-frame systems.  The handling systems will comply with the new DNV rules on Lifting Appliances.
"The vessel is a highly prestigious oceanographic project and we are pleased that Hyundai Heavy Industries has selected Caley Ocean Systems to supply the all-important offshore handling systems. Based on the latest industry practices, our handling systems are designed to meet the most exacting operational and safety conditions," says Gregor McPherson, sales director, Caley Ocean Systems.
