Offshore cable Pull-In Winch
Our new pull-in winch has been successfully deployed for the pull-in of an export cable. The winch can be used for a large number of applications both on- and offshore and has a very unique feature. It is able to pull 15ton on any 400V power supply without overloading it, even 16Amps.

NEW DEVELOPMENT IN OFFSHORE CRANE CT TESTING
Recently, we assisted in testing an offshore crane equipped with Constant Tension for lifting parts from ship to platform. The crane must follow the ship movements with a slight pre-tension in the hoisting cable and deliver full lifting capacity at the top of the wave. For the commissioning and testing of the crane, we have converted our machine into a Wave Simulator which can accurately simulate a wave by means of a sinusoidal motion. With this we are able to achieve a significant wave height of 2mtr with a maximum speed of 70 m/min. Our advanced machine interface allows us to automatically simulate in real time any desired wave height in the range of 0 - 6mtr. This solution is also suitable for testing Active Heave Cranes

First official job for our new 15tons spooling machine
This week our machine was used for the winding of 6km rope Ø40mm. The machine is designed to work with high tension combined with average speed and low tension combined with high speed. This makes it possible to speed up to 80 m/min with approx. 1000 kg of pre-tension.

New compact 15 tons electric spooling machine
In addition to our 60tons diesel hydraulic spooling machine, we recently invested in a small 15tons electric spooling machine with which we can generate a very accurate pre-tension by spooling of wire ropes and electricity cables. Another advantage of this compact machine is the low dead weight. Therefore we can transport the machine with a standard trailer and we are quickly deployable.

Hoisting wire rope replacement of Liebherr LTM11200 telescopic crane
With our spooling service we can replace your hoisting wire ropes on site. For example, recently we provided a Liebherr LTM 11200 crane with a new hoisting wire rope. During the execution of this job the crane does not have to be erected. We can also advice you for extending the lifespan of the wire rope.

New employee
Last period, our team has been expanded with a new employee:

I would like to introduce myself. My name is André Borneman. The last couple of years I was busy building winches and tension machines, at the parent company Dromec. Next to this job I was working part time for TWS as operator of the tensionsystems. Because the work for TWS has increased, it was a logical step for me to transfer. In the future we would like to give you all service with our advice and our machines
