Alpa Double Retention System gives dramatic reduction in CO2 emissions.
Climate change is an ever-present concern for Alpa. As part of their commitment to environmental sustainability, they have developed alternative technologies to help reduce CO2 emissions from the oil and gas industry. The recent innovation, the Alpa Winch, is a bright example of the Alpa’s contribution to a greener and more sustainable oil and gas production.
The Alpa Winch system is suitable for high risk handling applications on vessels and rigs. It is designed in collaboration with Equinor and DNV GL following a full failure mode and effects analysis. For superior safety features, it is fabricated with two redundant winch systems mounted in one common frame with two independent suspension systems. The principle for redundancy is followed from the frame suspension to the lifted load. The complete system is powered by a redundant hydraulic system which is controlled by a fail-safe control system. This ensures maximum safety in all situations.
But how does the use of Alpa winch contribute to abate carbon emissions in the oil and gas industry? Read on to discover.
