Title (EN) WINCHING APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ DE TREUILLAGE
Abstract:
(EN) A winching apparatus and method for winching a load are disclosed which are particularly suitable for, though not exclusively limited to, use with heave compensated hoists or cranes, for example, on a floating structure such as a vessel. The winching apparatus comprises a first winch, a second winch, a winch line, at least one sheave or guide, a winch line cycling means and a load connection means, wherein the load is connectable to the load connection means, the winch line extends from the first winch round the at least one sheave or guide to the second winch and the winching apparatus is configured to transfer winch line between the first and second winches while the winch line cycling means cycles winch line backwards and forwards round the at least one sheave or guide.
(FR) La présente invention porte sur un appareil de treuillage et sur un procédé pour treuiller une charge, particulièrement appropriés pour, mais non exclusivement limités à, une utilisation avec des treuils ou grues à compensation de pilonnement, par exemple sur une structure flottante et notamment un vaisseau. L'appareil de treuillage comprend un premier treuil, un second treuil, un câble de treuil, au moins une poulie ou un guide, un moyen de déclenchement de câble de treuil et un moyen de liaison de charge, la charge pouvant être reliée au moyen de liaison de charge, le câble de treuil s'étendant depuis le premier treuil autour de la au moins une poulie ou du au moins un guide, vers le deuxième treuil. L'appareil de treuillage est conçu pour permettre le transfert du câble de treuil entre lesdits premier et second treuil lorsque le moyen de déclenchement de câble de treuil active le câble de treuil vers l'arrière et vers l'avant autour de ladite au moins une poulie ou dudit au moins un guide.
