STR makes a splash at Ocean Business with the launch of the 'STR SEATOW-6000'

Subsea Technology & Rentals (STR) is delighted to announce the launch of the ‘STR SeaTow-6000’ Electric Winch.

The announcement of STR’s latest product was made at Ocean Business 2021 in Southampton, United Kingdom.

The STR SeaTow-6000 is the latest addition to STR’s class leading field proven electric winch systems that are used extensively for hydrographic, geophysical, and oceanographic survey globally.

This winch is designed for deep water applications typically utilising 6000m of 11.4mm armoured coaxial cable. Alternative armoured fibreoptic cables can also be supported. Typical applications for the STR SeaTow-6000 are sidescan sonar, combined sidescan sonar and sub-bottom profiler systems, marine magnetometers, gradiometers, drop camera systems and oceanographic sensors.

Scott Johnstone, STR’s Group Managing Director said “As the industry’s elite gather at Ocean Business 2021 to celebrate the Offshore Energy Industry with a key focus on marine survey, we couldn’t think of a more appropriate platform to launch the STR SeaTow-6000 Electric Winch.

Our innovative and diverse team of highly skilled engineers have developed this winch from the key feedback they have received from our customers and their operational requirements. As we progress into 2022, we will look to further compliment our Electric Winch range with the launch of the STR SeaTow-500 and STR SeaTow-2000".
