Deck machinery specialist, ACE Winches has delivered and engineered a back deck solution for Saipem.
Working to a tight deadline of three and half weeks, ACE Winches worked in conjunction with Scantrol AS to supply a deck machinery solution which included an Active Heave Compensation winch and A-frame solution that will be used as an auxiliary deep water deployment system for subsea equipment
The deck machinery equipment
was engineered and manufactured at ACE Winches facilities in Aberdeenshire and was mobilized to Saipem for work scheduled for 2017 and beyond.
Increased operational time, safe handling and reduce risk of damage of subsea equipment are all important arguments of why Active Heave Compensation is important for subsea operations, especially in harsh weather conditions.
