Greek Assodivers Underwater Contractors have taken delivery of two MERMAC winches from MacArtney to be used on the Kriegers Flak offshore wind project in the Danish Baltic Sea.The delivery consists of one 19.5 ton AHC (active heave compensation) winch and one 6 ton umbilical winch. In addition, the scope of supply includes electrical slip rings, junction boxes, MRUs, extra level wind guide roller kits and wireless remote controls.The AHC winch is intended to relocate huge stones from the seafloor, and the umbilical winch is to be used for pulling a cable plough.Electric AHC winch solutions are often preferred for ROV systems and for handling equipment that is to operate near or on the seabed, MacArtney said. AHC immediately compensates for vessel movement caused by waves, even in heavy seas. This feature reduces weather-related downtime and considerably facilitates launch and recovery of tethered equipment, the company said.”This is not the first time we’ve placed an order with MacArtney. Our business relations go further back and emphasize the fact that we always rest assured to be granted superior customer service and product quality on the part of MacArtney,” said Sarantos Konstantatos, Procurement Officer, Assodivers Underwater Contractors.The Kriegers Flak offshore wind farm is owned by Vattenfall and will comprise 72 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines, expected to be fully operational by 2021.Assodivers is responsible for cable burial works at the Kriegers Flak Combined Grid Solution (CGS), a project that will interconnect Danish and German grids via Kriegers Flak and Baltic 2 offshore wind farms.

Hearts of Oak head coach, Kim Grant, was very happy with his team’s performance in their 1-0 win over Karela FC in Week 12 of the NC Special Competition.The match, which was played at the Accra Sports Stadium, was settled by a Christopher Bonney penalty in the second half and the result gave Hearts top spot on 25 points and passage to the last four of the competition.After the match, Grant said that he was very satisfied with what he saw from his players especially looking at how difficult Karela made the match.“Karela are not a bad team and I set my boys up to be compact. Obviously, once we got the goal, they were going to try and get back into the game and that was why I brought in Agyare just to block the spaces.Overall, I am really pleased because we were very solid. We did well against Dwarfs (in Week 11) and today, we kept things going. I knew that if we kept a clean sheet, we would have a chance. We had a few chances but we failed to score. We had a penalty shout in the first half and we got the actual penalty in the second.I am pleased for the boys because they have worked hard. Now, we have 25 points and we look forward to the next game.”The Phobians face Elmina Sharks in their next game in Accra before completing their first round campaign against Dreams FC in Dawu.
