The MacArtney Group announced the delivery of a CORMAC 4 Stainless Steel Winch system to the Institute of Geosciences at the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel. The winch system, which was acquired through German MacArtney Group member, MBT GmbH, will be put to use aboard various research vessels, hereunder the R/V Alkor, which is operated by the GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel.

Housed within a self-contained and compact stainless steel structure, the CORMAC winch is rugged, easily portable and offers extensive flexibility to scientific operators such as the Christian Albrechts University of Kiel (CAU), who require the winch to be used on multiple different vessels. The winch is delivered as a plug and play system, spooled with 500 meters of Rochester coaxial cable and complete with termination, slip ring, wireless remote control, cable sheave and cable status indicator.

The CAU contributes to a better understanding of the processes and the development of strategies for a sustainable use and conservation of the ocean. Within the framework of the interdisciplinary Kiel Marine Science (KMS), CAU supports diverse activities of marine research projects with more than 25 research groups at seven different faculties. This includes expertise from areas such as climate research, coastal research, physical chemistry, botany, microbiology, economics as well as law and sociology. The close cooperation of the Kiel marine scientists is also shaped by joint activities in research and teaching at the CAU facilities Institute for Geosciences and Research and Technology Center in Büsum, together with GEOMAR Helmholtz Center for Ocean Research Kiel.

In the hands of scientists and scholars, the new CORMAC winch will be used to launch and recover oceanographic and acoustic equipment, hereunder, primarily, a Benthos C3D Side Scan Sonar.
