Seaway Powell Marine, experts in bespoke deck equipment, custom engineering solutions and electro-mechanical actuation, have reported a very successful week at Seawork International 2014. With a large amount of interest in both Seaway Powell’s PT USA V series actuator and the Hypac automatic windlass.
The PT USA V Series Actuator is a rugged, flexible, low-maintenance actuator platform for linear motion control and is built at the Seaway Powell manufacturing facility in Shaftesbury, Dorset. The V series actuators can be either retro-fitted or installed as part of a new mechanical system. When combined with modern servo motors and controls, electro-mechanical actuation provides nearly infinite programmability, reduced set-up times and improved control of speed, acceleration, deceleration, force and position.
Seaway Powell also showcased their new automatic windlass. Originally designed and manufactured by Australian based sister company, Hypac, the automatic windlass forms part of a range of lightweight deck gear and features an automatic brake for remote operation from the wheel house or pendant control, leaving the foredeck completely clear for loading systems and cargo.
Designed for under deck installation, the windlass provides a fast haul in to raise the anchor quickly and efficiently, as well as a creep speed for anchor stowage to protect the vessels’ hull from damage.
