ACE Winches Announce Global Footprint on Spooling and Inspection Services20th June 2019
ACE Winches, the global leader in the design, manufacture and hire of lifting, pulling and deploying solutions , have increased their global presence by expanding their offering at a number of strategic locations worldwide. Supported through working partnerships with Hendrik Veder Group in Norway and the Netherlands, and a strategic alliance agreement between ACE and Emirates Safety Services in the Middle East.
ACE Winches will strengthen its offering by providing a full suite of heavy spooling equipment located in Aberdeen, Singapore, Stavanger, Houston, Dubai and Rotterdam. This includes providing clients with engineering, design and manufacturing services from the company’s headquarters in the UK.
The portfolio of modern equipment supplied by ACE Winches can deliver spooling operations and wire inspections up to 150mm in diameter and up to 550 tonnes in weight. This provides clients with the flexibility and support they require in locations where spooling works have previously been challenging due to lack of equipment available, and lack of trained personnel experienced in inspection and handling of high value ropes and umbilicals.
Harry MacLean, Hendrik Veder Group International Development Director welcomed the partnership with ACE Winches and said: “Off the back of the successful ACE Winches and Hendrik Veder Group working relationship in Norway, we are delighted to now offer a full turn-key solution of wire rope and spooling services in Rotterdam to cover our mainland European operations. This means we can provide a solution for our clients that is operationally more efficient and cost-effective.”
Ken Mackay, Director at Emirates Safety Solutions said: “We are delighted to have established this partnership with ACE Winches. Their wealth of experience and the high-quality spooling winches and services that they offer mean that we are confident that they are a reliable and trusted partner.”
ACE Winches continues to show its commitment to clients by focussing on maximising operational efficiency, utilisation and capability. ACE also offer a wide range of services including: onsite commissioning, reverse engineering, FMECA and engineering surveys, product support and upgrades, equipment repairs and much more.
