When Statoil, a leading energy company in oil and gas production, required a complete rental Pull in Winch System including Wire Rope and HPU for their Subsea Line Modification Project, ACE Winches was able to supply the total package. The deck machinery specialist designed and engineered a Linear Winch System required for operation on the Troll B Platform, offshore Norway.

ACE Winches had the in-house capability and skills required to take on the project and provide a solution based on Statoil’s specific requirements. The rental package supplied incorporated a compact design and weight optimized linear winch, designed for use in land based shore pulls and offshore wire rope deployment and recovery operations. The model consists of a rigid outer framework housing grippers fitted to a travelling carriage arrangement. The grippers are designed to accommodate multiple wire rope diameters. Each carriage is actuated by two hydraulic cylinders mounted within an outer framework.

Kjartan Kopren, ACE Winches, Sales Manager Scandinavia stated ‘Our engineering and project team worked on a bespoke solution together with Statoil’s technical department. This project is a perfect example of ACE Winches being a turnkey solution provider and gave us the opportunity to showcase our engineering capabilities and services on the Troll B for Statoil.’ Throughout the project, from start to finish, ACE Winches worked in close collaboration with the client, ensuring that the solution met all their needs.

The ACE Linear Winch rental fleet currently consists of 100te and 200te systems, a new 400te system will be available shortly.
