After an intense survey campaign, the HydrauWinch 65ED returned end of 2020 in Hydrauvision’s workshop. Besides the well-deserved TLC, the winch was rebuilt with not only DNV-GL / Lloyds in mind but also with the English LOLER and PUWER. Making it the first “Brexit proof” rental winch.Upgrades include: full crash frame and barrier protection, starting-up signaling and provided with both wired as well as wireless remote control. The wireless remote control is a DNV-GL type approved, multi frequency with PLe and SIL3 security unit. Besides this technical upgrade, we can not forget the new fresh look with new lettering.
While the LOLER compliance ink was still drying on the certificates, the winch spread was swiftly mobilized. She will be joining DESPINA, the state-of-the art Ulstein’s SX130 of Golden Energy Offshore on charter for a significant Fugro survey campaign on the North Sea.
