New Hydraulic Bow Thruster & Anchor Winch to Launch at Seawork 2016

Hercules Hydraulics will be launching two new products at Seawork 2016.

The new lightweight Bow Thruster, suitable for larger vessels than the Company’s existing range, is available with a choice of 55, 60 and 65HP variants providing between 605KG and 715KG of hydraulic thrust. The tunnel is once again constructed from extruded 5083 aluminium alloy, although a choice of composite E-glass and mild steel are offered as alternatives.

A new Anchor Winch is also joining the Company’s successful range of DNV Type Approved Aluminium Anchor Winches. The AAW205 is designed for vessels with an equipment number of 205 and so, once again is suitable for larger vessels but maintains all the lightweight, heavy-duty characteristics of the existing AAW90, AAW110 and AAW150 models.

Hercules Hydraulics will be launching the new HHBT65 Bow Thruster and AAW205 Anchor Winch on Stand PY58 at Seawork 2016.
