ERA Positioning Winches


4 x 2T Diesel Hydraulic Winch Units for Energy Resources Australia

ERA contacted Neumann Equipment to design and manufacture four self-contained winch units to position a barge on a pond. The team onsite fitted the four winches with drag manifolds, ensuring tension is maintained on the winches as two are hauling out when positioning the barge on the pond. In addition, each winch was placed at diagonally opposite corners of the pond allowing two-axis location of the unpowered barge.

The onsite team fitted these winches with level wind systems to ensure that the Dyneema rope spooled onto the drum well at all times. Using distance and tension monitoring, the operator can constantly ensure that the line tension is within the rated capacity and determine how far to move the barge.

All sheaves and rollers are manufactured from high-quality engineering plastics that reduce the wear on the DyneemaThe onsite team rope. These ensure that expensive ropes are maintained in good condition.

The self-contained diesel-hydraulic power unit uses a load sensing pump and wireless pendant with integrated proportional hydraulic control to allow inching movements and up to 44 m/min line speed.
