Cosalt Offshore Acquires Spooling Winch

press release
Wednesday, November 16, 2011
(L to R): ACE Winches chief operating officer Graeme Wood and Cosalt Offshore CEO Rod Buchan with the new 50-tonne spooling winch.

Cosalt Offshore, which provides lifting, tooling and marine services to the oil & gas industry, has recently ordered a second 50-tonne spooling winch from ACE Winches as part of a major investment in equipment.

 

The second winch, destined for Norway, was ordered following an increasingly high demand for the first, which has been in constant operation in the North Sea since its delivery in February 2011. The winch package is designed to carry 50 tonnes of wire rope or umbilical and complements Cosalt Offshore’s full range of quality lifting products for the energy industry. It will be used by Cosalt Offshore’s experienced rigger teams to carry out spooling operations to remove or install large wire ropes on board client vessels.


Designed and built at ACE Winches’ manufacturing facility at Towie Barclay Works and comprehensively FAT tested on its 750-tonne capacity hydraulic Test Bed Facility, prior to delivery, the winch system has built-in heave compensation line tensioning and a computerised controls package. Cosalt Offshore Chief Executive Officer Rod Buchan said: “This is a good example of how we work with our suppliers to ensure we have high quality products that are fit for purpose. By working closely in such a way, we are helping to promote a positive supply chain that is beneficial to the North Sea industry as a whole.

 

“This piece of kit is part of an overall multi-million pound investment programme in new equipment we are planning over the coming months to ensure we have the best stock in the industry available to meet increasing demand. Cosalt Offshore’s reputation for surpassing client expectations and ensuring highest safety standards are met has helped us to secure record levels of work for this year and into the future.’’ ACE Winches’ CEO, Alfie Cheyne, said: “This opportunity with Cosalt reflects the value of working in close partnership with customers, which is the cornerstone of ACE Winches’ philosophy. Our capabilities in managing the total project solution in-house through our design, engineering and project management teams are complemented by our specialist manufacturing and testing facilities on-site. At ACE Winches, we work in tandem with our customers, tailoring our products to clients’ precise requirements and delivering exceptional service and project performance.”
