This section describes the detailed methodology for installation of the Drinking Water Discharge Winch System
components, namely; winch, levelwind, and hydraulic power package. The mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic
installation procedures are discussed.
As previously discussed in Section 2.0 System Description and Section 3.0, Structural System, the winch is
mounted on a wide flange I-beam base with the basic configuration and dimensions as presented in Figure 6-1.
The base should be positioned on board the vessel so that there is a maximum surface contact between the base
and the deck to maintain local load to a minimum. There are six (6) bolt-on weld-down brackets with thirty-two (32) sets
of 3/4-10 UNC 2-1/2-inch long bolts with nuts and lock washers supplied with the winch system. The configuration of the
brackets are shown in Figure 6-2. The suggested procedure for the winch installation is as follows:
Attach bolt-on weld-down brackets (6 pcs) to winch base with 3/4-10 UNC
Position winch using proper handling techniques (see Section 8.1, Handling
Techniques and Limitations)
Weld bolt-on weld-down brackets (6 pcs) to deck. Note that the bracket material
is ASTM A-36 steel.
