Power Dynamics Innovations LLC has been awarded a contract by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Carderock, for the design and construction of four winch packages consisting of the winch, diesel powered HPU and Controls for SEAFAC, Southeast Alaska Acoustic Measurement Facility, located in Ketchikan, AK. The Winch Packages will be used in a Three Point Mooring System during the handling of underwater equipment.
PDI was awarded the contract March 22, 2017 with a required delivery of the equipment by August 11, 2017. Carl Liberty PDI Managing Member says, “This four month window for design, approval, manufacturing, testing and delivery is a testament to our team of professionals, which includes employees in all areas of our operations.” Liberty goes on to say, “PDI has selected supply partners who can deliver. These key supply partners understand our needs and they extend our capabilities in delivering high quality products to our customers and we thank them for their contributions, we delivered on schedule without delays.”
PDI has thirty years of providing successful, cost effective custom designed equipment and fluid power solutions. “We are thankful for this opportunity to supply our Dynamic Power TM Winches, HPU’s and Controls to SEAFAC”, says Liberty.
Power Dynamics Innovations LLC is known as a leader in the industry, engineering custom winches and controls, hydraulic power units and pipeline tensioning equipment.
PDI supplied three positioning winch packages and one anchor winch package. The design includes mounting the major components on a self-supporting master skid, with the operator’s station movable to either side of the winch. The master skid foundations have lifting pad eyes that make it very easy to position the winch packages.
Each winch package also contains the primary power source consisting of a diesel Tier 3 marine rated engine, along with local control consisting of engine and hydraulic instruments to operate the winch from a seated position. The design challenge in meeting the winch performance specifications was keeping the winch package to a size and weight that would not require special transporting permits.
