North Sea Winches have recently delivered the last winch of an eleven winch package complete with full hydraulics system to Manor Marine in Portland, Dorset.

The vessel under construction is the new river workboat for Port of London Authority (PLA), designed as a “Swiss army knife” for the busy Thames waterway.

North Sea Winches Ltd have supplied a 120 tonne WLL main winch, a handed pair of 20 tonne utility winches, 4 x 15 tonne mooring winches, 3 x 6 tonne capstans, the anchor / mooring winch, cable storage reel and the complete hydraulics system, which also runs a pair of deck cranes.

Delivery has been scheduled over several months as the build progressed; with the package now delivered the vessel is due for launch later this year.
