W. Bloem Het ontwerp van een tractielier.
Engineering assignment, Report 87.3.OS.2325, Transport Engineering and Logistics / Offshore Engineering.

Subject of this report is the design of a traction winch for use in a semi-submersible drilling rig. This traction has to relieve the storage winch for the anchor cable. This is achieved by means of running the cable over a pair of traction sheaves, thus decreasing the tension in the cable before storage on the storage winch. The winch is designed for cables with a diameter of 3"5 (89 mm).
