The GW500E is a winch with an electro-hydraulic power unit, which comprises 2 parts: The power unit, which consists of two electric motors with 250 kW each, and the winch itself with the drum.
This environmentally friendly electro-hydraulic winch is often used in the construction industry, e.g. when hydro-power plants or pipelines are built. The excess surplus which occurs on downhill transportation can be fed back through the GW500E into the existing power grid. The winch reaches a line speed of almost 6 m/s. With its two independent brake systems (safety brake and operation brake) , the winch offers a high level of safety. It has a total weight of 15.3 tons.
For cableway systems, the winch can be used with a circular drive. A winding device as well as a circular drive module are available as options.
