Stand-alone offshore winch systems


MacGregor offers a wide range of stand-alone offshore winch systems, with or without an active heave-compensation (AHC) function automatic overload protection (AOPS) or manual overload protection (MOPS). These systems include hydraulic power units (HPUs), variable speed drives (VSDs) and a control system. They can be used together with an A-frame and module handling tower. Winch systems are available with a SWL up to 600-tonnes on a single line.

Normally the winch foundation will be bolted to the deck, but can be adapted to the customer's specifications.
