SMD have a long history in supplying a large range of both lifting umbilical winches and tow winches. We also offer bespoke electric winch solutions.
Our lifting umbilical winches are capable of handling loads up to 25Te operating in up to sea-state 7. The umbilical cables are double armoured and operate at voltages from 3300 to 4500 volts. Lifting umbilical winches are primarily used to power Q-Trencher ROVs, such as the QT1400 and the QT600 and lightweight tractor systems.
Tow winches are primarily used in conjunction with cable plough systems, with tow capacities from 35Te to 200Te tow load. The tow winches incorporate fleeting systems in conjunction with render functions for various towing speeds.
