Hyak Maritime Chooses Markey Winch

By MarEx 2014-03-05 13:35:00

Markey Machinery in conjunction with Hyak Marine, is preparing a new TESD-34-100HP Double Drum electric towing winch for shipment that will be installed on the Jensen designed ABS machinery class ocean-going tugboat MONTANA.

The MONTANA is a 37 Meter 80 Ton Bollard Pull Line Haul ASD tug and her stern will be outfitted with a new Markey Series TESD-34 100 HP double drum electric winch.

The AC Variable Frequency electric drive satisfies a wide range of performance requirements and all electrical components comply with ABS, USCG, and IEEE-45 standards.

The TESD-34 Double-Drum Towing Winch is rated for 2500 feet of 2 1-4” wire rope on each drum, and features a line-pull of up to 183,000 lbs. and a drum brake capacity of 293,000 lbs. A levelwind is also included for the starboard side drum. The TESD-34’s load shedding feature allows the generator switchboard to communicate with the winch’s Variable Frequency Drive to reduce power to 50% if the generator becomes overloaded.

The MONTANA is the third tug in Hyak’s latest build series, following the HAWAII and the WASHINGTON.

Blaine Dempke, President of Markey Machinery stated, “We are very pleased that our good friends at Hyak Maritime have selected a Markey winch for the third tug in their fleet, and we’re sure its strength and reliability will serve them well for years to come.”
