United Kingdom : SEAWAY Powell gains RNLI capstans supply deal.
Commencing previous month and set to function till December 2014, the Seaway Powell Marine contract is to render the first 10 Shannon Class vessels with its C3000E capstans.
RNLI commercial manager Gary Coleman says: We have a long standing relationship with Seaway Powell. Our decision for them to provide capstans for our latest class of all-weather lifeboat, the Shannon, was made because the product is built to withstand the tough conditions that our lifeboats operate in, and they provide a good standard of customer service.
Up to 30mm in diameter, Seaway Powell s C3000E capstan can accept rope, while drive can be either from 12 or 24 volt DC or hydraulic motor, providing a rated pull load of 1400kg at a speed of 34 metres per minute.
However, Seaway Powell has constructed over 400 capstans for the workboats and lifeboats market and is now flourishing its operations to include the servicing and repair of marine hydraulic systems and equipment.
