Windlass is a machine used on ships, which can heave up equipment such as a ship's anchor or a fishing trawl. It is designed not only to meet class requirements but also operational needs, which are often seen in off-shore tugs and vessels. The windlass duty ratings are greatly increased to match greater anchoring depths. Windlass controls at remote wheelhouse for out-of-sight operation is optional.
Windlass/ Towing Winch:
For harbor tugs and escort duty tugs, we design a small diameter windlass to adapt to a high power winch drum. To meet operational requirements, with built-in automatic rope render-recovery feature, the winch drum is ftted with rope tension and length readout. We recommend to our customers that all towing escort winch should be equipped with an emergency release system.
Windlass/ Mooring Winch:
As an option for simple mooring applications, clients can choose remote wheelhouse for out-of-sight operation with length readout and winch controls. Tension control system can also be built into the system, allowing the moored vessel to compensate for draft changes during loading or unloading operations or tidal changes.
