Seafarers’ charity has been supporting seafarers and their families for over 100 years. WIND, originally a maritime company, is dedicated to supporting their colleagues at sea. DROMEC is proud to support this cause, as our business activities also have a significant focus in the maritime sector.
WIND rents equipment worldwide. DROMEC Winches supplies various winch systems to WIND, which are used, among other things, for guiding a High Voltage Offshore Cable from the carousel. Before a cable layer can set sail with a full carousel, the cable often needs to be spooled onshore. DROMEC Winches has developed a winch system that can guide the cable under tension, ensuring it is neatly placed in the carousel and can be paid out at a later time.
For the Seafarers’ Charity Fund, WIND organized a challenge in the Lake District in England. Participants successfully climbed 24 peaks within 48 hours, covering 33 miles with a 13,000 ft ascent. And they conquered it!
