Offshore staff

SCHIEDAM, the Netherlands – Oceana Shipyard, part of the Grupo CBO, has contracted Huisman to supply two additional anchor handling and towing winch packages for two new Havyard 843 anchor handler tug supply (AHTS) vessels.

In 2015, CBO ordered four anchor handling and towing winch packages, the first of which was delivered in November 2016.

As with the earlier order, Huisman will build the equipment at its production plant in Navegantes, Brazil, for delivery in 1Q 2018. The winches will feature 50% Brazilian content.

The two electric-driven systems will each comprise one 400-metric ton (441-ton) anchor handling, one 400-metric ton towing and two 120-metric ton (132-ton) secondary winches.

Aside from typical winch functions they will be fitted with water cooled clutches integrated in the drive train, enabling overload protection, high speed pay-out, and emergency release function.

The contract scope includes services as spare parts, training, and supervision.
