The Gun Handling System consists of the following main components:
- Air manifold
- Gun winch
- Spooling guide
- Overhead craneway system
- Stern gate
- Slipway tool
- Source handling system
Our gun handling system reduces the number of different spare-parts carried by using the same type of motors, valves and gears wherever possible. All winches and handling systems for gun handling
are built to customer requirements and specifications in close cooperation with the ship design company.
The winch compressor air manifold system can be either remote controlled or manual, specified to meet the individual customers requirement.
Our gun winches are slim and can be equipped with our newly developed load tension system. An easy adapter system for quick connection to the onboard air system is also a part of our
scope of supply.
A spooling guide for securing the cables entrance onto the drums, is installed straight behind the gun winches.
Overhead craneway system
An overhead craneway system can be installed to ensure maximum utilisation when storing the arrays. The craneway is delivered with either an electric or a hydraulic drive system, connected to our remote control system
for easy operation.
Our stern gate is newly developed to minimise the amount of sea-water entering the vessel in harsh weather conditions. The stern gates can be adapted to the required size.
The slipway tool has a special drive design that enables quick operation, and secures no jamming. The slipway tool can easily be adapted to all vessels with our interface bracket for wooden or steel
Source handling system
We have developed a brand new source handling system for automatic deployment and retrieval of sources; soft arrays or stiff arrays can now be handled automatically. This makes a 30 year old
process much safer.
