Hercules Introduce ‘DNV Type Approved’ Aluminium Anchor Winch

Introduced at Seawork 2010 Hercules Hydraulics have been awarded type approval for their popular Aluminium Anchor Winch, which includes all the classification anchoring requirements in a single unit.

The winch is designed for Offshore Wind farm Vessels with an equipment number up to 90 and is made almost entirely from no ferrous materials weighing less than 110kg.

At this year’s Sea Work show the “Small Aluminium Anchor Winch” is due to be joined by a larger version to suit vessels with an Equipment Nr of 110 Both models are designed and built by Hercules at their premises in Devon.

The winches are hydraulically powered by a system also designed supplied and installed by Hercules Hydraulics. The hydraulic spooling device (shown illustrated) can simply be removed by unbolting if it is not required and fleeting angles allow.
