PH Hydraulics & Engineering winches are hydraulically or electrically driven. The basic fundamentals of designing and manufacturing a winch are applied to all of our winches in order to maintain a consistent and reliable performance. We have gained many years of experience manufacturing winches are we are constantly improving our designs to suit the demands of our customers.

Category: .

Our Winches are class and have approvals from DNV, ABS, BV, CCS and Llyods

Purpose of a Winch:

  • To lift and lower loads in a controlled manner whilst controlling the position and protecting the wire rope.
  • The installed power should be sufficient to move the load at the required speed.
  • The design to include both static and dynamic brakes.
  • The winch specification is defined by rope size and length, line speed and line pull.

Anchor windlass:

  • Used to lift and lower a heavy anchor.
  • Anchor chain wraps around a gypsy wheel which contains pockets to engage the links of the chain.
  • Gypsy wheel is driven through a gear ratio to the prime mover to achieve a designed load and speed.
  • Band brakes are fitted to the gypsy for controlled emergency release when the windlass is not active.

Double Drum Multi-Purpose Winch:

  • Designed as a double drum 250 ton waterfall compact multi-purpose winch system.
  • The A/R Drum is used for deep water pipe laying application.
  • Mooring handling drum (M/H) is used for deep water anchor handling and mooring.
  • Mooring drum is fitted with a range of chain handling gypsy wheel attachment.
  • Design allows the power of all 6 motors to be directed to either the A/R or M/H drum.

Mooring Winch

  • Used to moor the vessel forward while laying pipes.
  • Has global positioning dynamics to guide the vessel on a straight course.
  • Enables the vessel to move in a uniform direction while laying pipes.
  • On some occasions, operators use mooring winches as anchor winches to anchor a vessel down while not in operation.

Abandonment and Recovery (A/R) Winch

  • Is used when the pipe lay operation cease due to poor weather conditions. When weather condition improves, this winch is used to recover the pipes from the sea-bed to continue its pipe lay operations.
  • While laying pipes, there could be some damages to the joints between each pipe and this winch is used to recover the pipes from the sea-bed and bring it on deck for further repairs.

Riser Pull in Winch

  • Riser Pull in Winch. This winch is used to pull the Riser or Umbilical from the sea bed. Such risers can weigh as much as 200 ton.
