Ever increasing drilling and production in deepwater and arctic fields requires equipment of highest quality and performance. MacGregor’s continuous research and development ensure that these requirements are met.
Pusnes mooring winches have evolved from steam-driven ship winches back in the late 1800s to the state-of-the-art electric and high-pressure hydraulic winches of today. Our offshore product range comprises anchor windlasses, chain jacks, traction winches, combination winches and rope/wire winches. Custom control and monitoring systems provide precise handling and management of a single winch or an integrated system of winches.
Pusnes RamWinch/Chain jack became a popular choice for the mooring of production vessels after their introduction in 1997. Compact size and low weight contributed to this winch being used on the majority of all spar platforms in the Gulf of Mexico, and increasingly for semis. Most of the spar RamWinches are designed to endure submerged conditions during transportation of the hull. Up to several months.
Both the movable windlasses and movable chain jack mooring systems are available and tailored according to client's requirement.
