TSL delivers a wide range of towing winches for all types of tugs, also supply towing winches for various types of offshore vessels (PSV and stand by vessels). They can be outfitted in any kind of configuration, with any desired capacity and powered by electric or hydraulic drives. Depending on the scope of work, type and amount of wire, they are built with or without spooling devices. They are optionally equipped with tension and length measurement systems, and can be outfitted to work on render and recovery basis for (terminal) tugs performing ESCORT duties.
