It is relevant to a range of sectors including: offshore and marine; fishing; dockside, and construction & crane applications.

Equipment at the NFPC training facilities

This three-day course has a range of objectives, both knowledge-based and skills-based. On completion of the course, participants will:

  • Know the types of winch in common use across a range of industry applications and associated terminology;
  • Be able to identify the hazard and manage risks associated with winch maintenance;
  • Know the function, operation, application and control of the major components including winch construction;
  • Know the principles of load sensing and associated valves, pumps, motor drive systems and motion control valves;
  • Know the procedures to follow when carrying out effective installation, commissioning and fault diagnosis;
  • Know the causes of failure in hydraulic systems and importance of good contamination management at all times.

During the practical sessions, participants will:

  • Build hydraulic winch circuits by interpreting a hydraulic circuit diagram;
  • Set up the hydraulic control valves for simple and load sensing winch systems;
  • Set up the controls on a typical load sensing variable displacement pump;
  • Connect the electrical interface to the hydraulic controls using manual switch and solenoids;
  • Investigate hydraulic load-holding techniques.

Comments from previous participants:

  • The plant I work on has different winches, from 5 to 40 tons. Now I feel more confident – good for me, my company and the client
  • The trainers are very skilled, friendly and have a solid background in the hydraulic industry, combining theory with practical technical training
  • Thanks to the practical element the training is very effective
  • Since August I’m now routinely troubleshooting, with the experience gained on this course
