Winch and anchor for Morobe Rainforest

Designing a hydraulics system for a re-purposed fishing vessel that now takes people and delivers product around Papua New Guinea.

The Morobe Rainforest is a freight vessel in Papua New Guinea. It's primary use is for transporting people and cargo around the coastline of the country.

To land on the beach, FPS worked with Reliance Engineering to develop a hydraulic system to drive the landing ramp and the crane anchor winch. This special winch drops anchor as the boat moves up and down the beach, making it easy to pull the boat off the beach. The system also controls the steering as well.
