Okeanus Science & Technology Launches Stackable Winch Series

Okeanus Science & Technology, LLC (Okeanus), an international provider of specialized ocean equipment and marine engineering services, today announced the launch of the firm’s new all-hydraulic Stackable Winch. This ruggedized compact 3 HP winch, which is supported by a 28’ x 12’ x 18’ drum and 0.450’ cable, is capable of a variable line speed of 100 ft/min and a line pull maximum of 700 lbs.

The Stackable Winch is constructed primarily of Aluminum 6061-T6 and, with its multi-coat marine grade coating, is primed for the rigors of offshore operating conditions and with full adherence to ABS standards. The “stackable” design feature enables operators to optimize precious space aboard smaller vessels.

“We are thrilled to launch the first model in our new line of compact, lightweight Stackable Winches,” said Okeanus Chief Operating Officer Don Brockett. “This new product line has been designed to offer offshore operators an intuitive, easy-to-maintain, and affordable option for survey vessels with limited available deck space, with the option to deploy up to three winches at the same time in a stacked formation.”

The all-hydraulic Stackable Winch (model number SW3-07-018012-EHLW) has been engineered to support a wide range of oceanographic equipment and marine instrumentation, including towed side-scan and magnetometer systems, water samplers, CTDs, and various other oceanographic winch operations. The Stackable Winch is also equipped with an automatic failsafe brake and locally mounted operator control, with an optional for either tethered or wireless remote control. Options include a levelwind, slipring, grooved drum cover, lifting bridle, and cable data display, with additional customization available on request.
