ACE lifting tools to support Jangkrik intervention program

Offshore staff

ABERDEEN, UKENI Indonesia has awarded ACE Winches a £1-million ($1.55-million) contract for the Jangkrik Muara Bakau project offshore Indonesia.

ACE’s hire equipment division will support well intervention and subsea wellhead deployment activities.

Currently the company is delivering to Paxocean Shipyard in Singapore a mooring spread of 10 large winches, power units, and associated mooring accessories. These will allow German contractor SAL Offshore to anchor its flagship MV Svenja in the Cook Inlet offshore Alaska. 

In May, ACE supplied 150-metric ton (165-ton) electrically driven and PLC-controlled stinger winches to Keppel Singmarine.

The equipment will be deployed onboard McDermott’s heavy-lift/pipelay vessel DLV2000.

Last month, the company supplied Heerema Marine Contractors with three large chain mooring systems for operations onboard the deepwater construction vessel Aegir to support INPEX’s Ichthys LNG project, 220 km (137 mi) offshore Western Australia.

The winches will deploy and tension 178-mm chain.
