MacArtney has supplied custom-engineered winch system to the Pakistani navy to be applied for naval ROV operations.
The winch solution equipped with a 3000 m fibre cable and termination has been purpose-built for use with a customer-built ROV designed for localising objects lost on the ocean floor.
The winch made from stainless steel, comes with several features facilitating accurate and effective equipment handling as well as a fibre optic slip ring, fibre optic cable, and fibre optic termination.
This specialised winch also features traction control making the winch capable of handling the neutrally buoyant Kevlar reinforced fibre optic ROV communication cable.
