Replenishment winches / RAS & FAS
RAS (replenishment at sea) and FAS (fueling at sea) winches allow ships to replenish without stopping or docking. Both solid materials and liquids can be transferred in this way. Many small winches are needed with low power and high speed.
The recognized flexibility of the winch designs has convinced different country navies and owners of specialized crafts to install specially designed Brusselle winches on board of their new buildings, such as replenishment winches or winches for fuel transfer at sea (RAS/FAS).
