Tuesday, 15 May, 2018 - 10:30

Techano, part of the Dutch Van Aalst Group, has secured a multiple offshore winch contract for a major upgrade project of a large North Sea rig. "Our offshore winches are designed and built for a highly specified North Sea rig currently undergoing a major upgrade," says Øystein Bondevik, Sales Director at Techano.

"Most of these rigs have enhanced equipment and stringent specifications in response to the increased demands from charterers and oil companies operating in the harsh environment of the North Sea. Our winches form an important part of these rigs' advanced capabilities," underlines Morten Sørensen, Managing Director.

The scope of delivery includes design, production of different winch types, Interface customization, DNV approvals and various controls (local, hydraulic remote & radio remote). Delivery is planned for September and installation will take place later this year.
