Why APPI:  This barge winch system is used to precisely position the barge and excavator over the river bed to control removal of the river bottom material in preparation for the concrete fittings that will form the base of the new dam being constructed.

The four mooring winches provide precise barge placement over the river bed.  The four fleeting winches position barges on either side of the excavator barge to facilitate removal of the dredged materials.

The custom designed control panel has joy sticks to control speed, freespool release, band brake release, winch selection and individual winch line tension.  The control panel also includes a digital display that indicates line tension and facilitates tension limiting adjustment during operation.
