OUCO underwater winches are custom made to suit your specifications and operational requirements.
Underwater winches are useful for many mission-critical applications. They can be positioned in shallow water, mid-ocean water column, or on the seabed down to 6000 meters. Typical underwater winch features include various level-wind and slip-ring configurations, low-power/power-regeneration options, slack rope prevention, and more.
Additionally, you can request protective cages and skid mounts for safe deployment underwater.
OUCO underwater winches are perfect for scientific research and more.

OUCO is one of the most professional underwater winch manufacturers in China. We always supply winches ideal for your application.
We offer you strict quality control, hundreds of projects worldwide, 40 years of experience, and innovative design.
We will help you configure an underwater winch perfect for your needs.
Underwater Operation Winch
OUCO underwater winches are usually mounted on buoys or on fixed subsea platforms. Therefore, the underwater winch needs to have a variety of integrated functions. OUCO ensures that the winch works in the best way on the seabed through Steel Wire Armor or PUR Cables, stainless steel housing, electric motors encapsulation, Skid Mount Equipment.
OUCO winch drum material has been specially selected to provide longer life when deployed underwater. Additionally, the winch can equipped with battery or cable power.
Applications of underwater winches
As the necessary equipment for marine scientific research, we attach great importance to the quality of our products. The protection classes can reach IP68 and above.
Our Underwater winch can be used for seabed salvage, deployment of marine science instruments, ROV equipment assistance, and other deep sea operations.
Latest Finished Underwater Winch
Underwater winches are carrying out a variety of crucial deep-water responsibilities.
They are positioned on a groundwater platform and installed on the seafloor or within the aquatic environment.
Underwater Winch is applicable for industrial, military, marine, mining, and oilfield.
There are classifications of prerequisites for both standard and custom Underwater Winch including:
- Simple Installation
- Adjustment and Maintenance Simplicity
- Low Complexity
- Multiple Cable Layers
- Surface Piercing Capability
- Good at lowering load under power
- Robust Drivetrains
- Most Efficient
- Light and Heavy Duty
- Total Cable Management Systems
- Stabilizing a remotely operated asset
- Handling an ROV’s tether framework
- Launching specialized marine equipment
- Variety of coating options
- Salt or freshwater capable
- Near silent winch layout for submarine equipment
- Customized keys and cable holder accessories
- AC and DC hydraulic solutions
- Depth capabilities
- Subsea mooring winches
Underwater Winch will not be formed without its parts, namely the following:
- Winch Drum
This is where the rope or chain is wrapped.
- Mounting Interface
It serves as the position of screw holes that are located at the side of the underwater winch.
- Winch Cable or Winch Rope
These cables spool around the electric winches that are mounted at the back.
- Slip Ring Cable
It passes electrical signals and power across a rotating interface using sliding electrical contacts.
- Enclosed Drive
It is a barrier or a cover around the underwater winch that serves as protection or privacy.
- Cable Fairlead Assembly
This is a device to guide a line rope or cable around an object.
- Subsea Frame
It performs operations such as offshore and subsea load handling.
An underwater winch is never just an underwater winch, particularly when engineering for failproof subsea preparations.
So here are the parameters to be administered:
- Line Pull
- Line Speed
- Minimum Bend Radius of Cable
- Cable Diameter
- Cable Length
- Water Depth
- Length of Deployment
- Remote Controls
- Power Budgeting or Optimization (when using battery power)
- Material Selection
The underwater winch has two power options including:
- Hand Powered
It is a manual take-up operation by using a rotating lever.
- Powered Motor
It has four types which include the following:
- Electric Motors
They come with permanent magnets or a variety of wound motors.
- Pneumatic Motors
It uses flow valves and air compressors to suppress winch speed by diverging airflow.
- Hydraulic Motors
They are supercharged by controlled hydraulic fluid and alter rotational kinetic energy.
- Gasoline Powered Motors
Engines are powered by fuel and are accessible for outboard applications.
