North Sea Winches were approached by Dunlop to design and manufacture a bespoke 50 tonne rated double drum winch for an FPSO being built in Korea. The winch is to provide mooring duties for the emergency riser system fitted to the vessel.

The winch design has full Bureau Veritas (BV) approval to NR 526 along with ALM Notation and ATEX certification of components.

The winch underwent full dynamic testing before packing and Airfreight to the Shipyard.
