Danfoss to develop electric marine winch with Kongsberg
Kongsberg Evotec, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kongsberg Maritime, is to collaborate with Danfoss Editron to develop a fully electric-powered marine winch.
Marine winches are used in on-water construction projects for offshore wind farms as well as other special vessels. The largest expected markets are fishing, research and seismic vessels.
The electric-powered winches are lighter than hydraulic winches, and do not require pipes or a separate hydraulic power unit. Electric-powered winches are more energy efficient than hydraulic winches, requiring lower average power usage, even when in idle operation. Electric-powered winches can also be controlled remotely.
Two Danfoss Editron drivetrain electric-winch systems have been supplied to the offshore and seismic markets.
