Geotech Winch

Used to lower Seismic sensors down dill holes, to precise locations below ground level.


It had been identified that the existing winch had not certification, and that proposed usage would require significant increase to capacity.


Trang performed a technical review of the existing winch, and determined that its capacity was not suitable for proposed usage.

As a result of this, Trang was engaged to find a suitable solution.


  • It was found that there were no 'off the shelf' solutions available
  • A customised design was undertaken, and reviewed with the Geo-technical Engineers for Approval.
  • Site risk assessments were performed, and the design modified to suit.
  • Drawings were issued for tender, and the successful tender was selected.
  • Trang provided technical support to the manufacturer, and conducted a factory inspection before dispatch.
  • The completed machine was delivered to site, with no further modifications required, and was able to be immediately deployed for its intended task.
