SDW deck winches for high-voltage cable line of a source (sparker or boomer) are designed for temporary or stationary setup on seismic acquisition vessels in order to provide hoisting operations and towing seismic sources during geophysical surveys.

The winch is equipped with a high-voltage slip ring and water-resistant patch panel for connecting a deck cable. Depending on the model, a drum’s rotation can be provided manually or by means of an electric drive via a worm gearbox and chain transmission with the possibility of a smooth variation in rotational speed. The design of electric drive allows one to statically stop the drum in any position. The winch electrical equipment is housed in a special case with IP-66 environmental protection.
