Atlas Winch & Hoist Services Ltd are a family-owned business that has worked within the winch and lifting equipment industry for many years. We offer highly personable customer service with attention to detail that is second to none that gives us a distinct advantage over our competitors. It’s because of this amazing service from our seasoned team that we work with high profile clients to provide them with a range of lifting, hoisting, pulling and winch equipment that is high quality and reliable. That’s what got the attention of Atlantic Marine & Aviation when they needed help.
Read on to find out more about how we assisted them.
Atlantic Marine & Aviation required a full 6 Point Mooring System for their vessel, the ‘Atlantic Carrier’. They decided to contract Atlas Winch & Hoist Services Ltd for the task, and we were happy to help.
A 6 Point Mooring system is used to moor vessels to the seabed using 6 different mooring lines. This helps to secure large vessels with ease and stop them from moving. The 6 winches work in tandem to secure the vessel and are capable of withstanding a lot of force, enabling vessel stability even in harsh conditions. These systems can be used in open water or in a harbour to keep barges, tankers or vessels in place.
The equipment we supplied included:
- 6 x 35Tonne Hydraulic Drum Winches
- 3 x Twin Pumped Diesel HPU
- 6 x 600m x 36mm diameter Wire Rope
- 4 x Horizontal Deck Sheaves
- 6 x Swivelhead Fairleads
- 6 x Running Line Monitors
- 1 x Central Bridge Control c/w CCTV
Finally, our engineers carried out a full function test of the system and attended a full sea trial to test the operation of the system. We worked with the company every step of the way to ensure the project was carried out efficiently, professionally and to their standards.
Atlas Winch & Hoist Services can work with clients with any requirements, working along their unique needs to provide equipment based on considerations such as water depth, seabed conditions, loads, wave effect, type of anchors and project description. We cater to projects of any scale, from simple winches to full 6 Point Mooring Systems.
Aside from new products, we also stock a range of used and refurbished winches along with lifting tackle, rigging equipment and cable drum trailers. We also offer winch hire if you only need a winch for a one-off application, able to offer competitive prices on this service.
