The Vocean Falcon has a new umbilical winch. The Compact hand powered unit has the same footprint as a standard winch for ease of installation to existing control containers.
The winch was built to provide a practical alternative to the 1100m umbilical winch built for tunnel surveys which has proven ungainly for offshore deployments.
The umbilical has four single mode fibres , four power and two CP conductors. This is supported by a two pass fibre optic slip ring. The winch is comes with a surface mux junction box which resides in the control room. The winch footprint is sufficiently compact that it can remain within the control container doors during operations. If it is necessary to site the winch outside, then deck cables of 7.5m and 20m length have been manufactured. The total umbilical length on the drum is 360m.
