EIVA Launches Winch Product Range
The OceanEnviro product range of winches for survey and deployment operations is now a potential item on orders placed by EIVA’s customers.
Offshore survey and engineering specialist EIVA has delivered winches to the international industry for more than 30 years. As of October 2013, the winches will carry EIVA’s logo and the name OceanEnviro, as the company launches its own range of high-quality winches for survey and deployment in connection with oceanographic and hydrographic operations.
“The winch is a vital element of survey and deployment setups where sensitive equipment is applied. Strong demands are placed on the product in terms of robustness, uptime and service life. We had a strong wish of being able to provide our customers with a product that can live up to this, which OceanEnviro has made possible,” said EIVA CEO Jeppe Nielsen.
OceanEnviro is designed in collaboration with winch-specialist Sepro Technology AS. The winch range is a further development of existing Sepro Technology AS products, pooling the expertise of both companies.
The OceanEnviro product range offers maximum cable lengths ranging from 600-2,700 meters, drum diameters from 250- 480 millimeters, and motor power from 1.5-10.4 kilowatts. The combination of an electronic level wind and a slip ring unit for the coax cable makes for better winch performance and minimum wear and tear. The frame and plate components protecting the winch are made of AISI 316 marine stainless steel, which vastly reduces the risk of corrosion.
