Solutions: Dredging

Dredging operations often rely on several winch related activities from mooring to the dredge head lines. Rugged Controls instrumented running line tensiometers are a superior choice for decimal point accuracy in payout and tension monitoring. Our design provides a smaller footprint than other models and is rapidly deployable for retrofitting existing winch systems. In combination with our line control displays, they provide real time and historical data to winch operators, bridge crew, and even remote operation centers or headquarters.
