iWinch Skid Systems

The iWinch is a new series of innovative, fully electric and automated wireline units

Less complexity, less downtime, faster response, more intelligence – iWinch leads the way into the future

iWinch can operate as an integral part of completely autonomous wireline intervention systems


Features

iWinch Skid Features 

  • Drums driven by permanent-magnet motors via heavy-duty gearboxes 
  • All electric design - no hydraulics
  • Single or dual drum versions
  • Choice of drums for slickline, braided or E-line
  • Fully automated with multiple interlocks and auto functions
  • Optional hybrid drive (energy saving batteries) drastically reducing fuel consumption

The iWinch is prepared for exchange of data with the optional IDEX system, which enables remote monitoring and control, based on real time decision support from skilled professionals in the organization, integration of intelligent prediction software, pre-assessment of runs as well as many other functions. It is designed to be a vital part of our Intelligent Conveyance technology.

The iWinch system can be packaged in different ways, optimized for cased hole, open hole or combination jobs.

North Sea Version 

Designed to exceed all NORSOK requirements in terms of capacity and performance, the iWinch is the North Sea wireline system of tomorrow. Being extremely compact and lightweight it fits all North Sea constricted platform spaces, is easily mobilized and rigged up and made ready for operation.

The iWinch may either be connected to a separate Power Unit skid consisting of control, electrical and cooling systems or everything may be combined on a single skid to reduce connections and rigging time. Normal North Sea set-up will be one dual drum iWinch Skid and one Add-On Skid for third party drums.

Four different drums cover everything from 0.092 slick to 7/32” braided.

The iWinch system is extremely flexible and, depending on options, be operated from multiple locations:

  • From an Operator Cabin, seated in an XOS Operator Station 
  • From a desk-based XOS Operator Station located in an “ice-box” or Platform office
  • Integrated with the rig’s Drilling Control System, operated from the Driller’s Chair
  • From a small wireless rigging and operation panel
  • Remotely from an X-Wall running mixed reality visualization, with the feeling of “being there”
  • Or autonomously based on pre-defined run planning taking into account best practices, optimization and reactions to events based on historical learning

iWinch skids are built into rugged offshore containers certified to DnV 2.7-X and conforms to the latest revisions of NORSOK, DnV, CE, ATEX.

International Version 

The iWinch Skid System for international markets is packaged in an 6.5ft wide container. This is ideal for compact offshore wireline systems, for onshore wireline systems that are hauled to site on a flatbed trailer or similar.

The system is divided in a winch area and an operator area divided by in internal window. The winch area can be fitted with a single or a dual drum winch system. The operator cabin is normally fitted with an XOS operator station, control system, electrical system and other utilities under the floor.

All advanced features available for the North Sea version can be selected for the International version.

iWinch Truck Systems

Fully electrical truck-based hybrid wireline system – fully automated, of course!

Flexible - can be configured for slick, braided, E-line or combination work

iWinches are designed to operate as an integral part of completely autonomous wireline intervention systems


Features

Our iWinch Truck Systems combines an electrical and automated iWinch with a digital cab environment. Combined, these provide the foundation for advanced and high-quality wellsite operations.

iWinch Truck Systems can be outfitted for single or dual drums and can be set up to perform slick line, logging or combination type of work. Being fully computerized the truck is programmed with multiple safety interlocks and automated modes.

The drive system is completely electric with no hydraulic fluid onboard. Being electrical, the iWinch can log at extremely low stable speed over 100’s of feet, auto-jar at higher acceleration than any hydraulic system, dynamically limit tension in milliseconds to save wire breakage, and combine job modelling with downhole data to control running inhole or outhole at optimum speeds.

iWinch Truck Features

  • Drums driven by permanent-magnet motors via heavy-duty gearboxes – no chains 
  • All electric design - no hydraulics
  • Single or dual drum versions
  • Choice of drums for slickline, braided or E-line
  • Fully automated with multiple interlocks and auto functions
  • Hybrid drive (energy saving batteries) drastically reducing fuel consumption
  • Can integrate downhole and surface data, and even operate based on downhole conditions
  • Ready for autonomous operations through Stimline’s Intelligent Conveyance technology

The iWinch is prepared for exchange of data with the optional IDEX system, which enables remote monitoring and control, based on real time decision support from skilled professionals in the organization, integration of intelligent prediction software, pre-assessment of runs as well as many other functions. It is designed to be a vital part of Stimline’s Intelligent Conveyance technology.
