Deck machinery specialist ACE Winches said it has been awarded a spooling contract with Vard Group AS for Norway’s largest construction vessel.

 
The scope of work includes the spooling of two 3,500 meter ROV umbilicals, the spooling of a crane boom wire and aux wire, including 3,900 meters of 135mm wire on to the vessel’s crane. The largest wire on this project weighs 360te, ACE Winches had to build a new upgraded spooling winch to accommodate the weight. The contract will see a dedicated team work on the project.
 
The project comes as ACE Winches announced the appointment of Andy Thom to its board as Chief Commercial Officer. Thom joins ACE Winches from Sea Trucks Group where he had held several senior management roles since 2008.
