Mammoet has announced the formal purchase of the linear winch Fleet and associated pipe pulling equipment. The purchase of the winches by Mammoet includes two state-of-the-art 800t capacity linear winches, which are unique to the industry, their design is patented and allows socket passing under load as well as utilizing advanced hydraulic controls for accurate monitoring. Also added to the Mammoet portfolio are several smaller linear winches ranging from 100t to 300t, and a range of drum winches. The equipment will be added to Mammoet’s Offshore Services equipment fleet.
The acquired assets will support the Mammoet Offshore Services team in continuing their focus in developing the offshore riser, umbilical, and cable pulling operations. Murphy / Land & Marine will continue to offer installation engineering support to future Mammoet linear winch operations
