Windlass Mooring Winch

The windlass could be designed with a permutation of multiple gypsies, mooring drums, subject to vessel dimensional constraint. With one or two mooring drums in the centre and chain lifters on both sides, they ingeniously combine the function of a mooring winch and anchor windlass in one piece of deck equipment. Besides the benefical effect on equipment installation costs, this solution saves a considerable amount of space on deck.

In anchoring mode the nominal pull and speed of these winches are limited by the control system, while full capacity is available for mooring operations. The anchoring operation (brake and clutch) is manually controlled from deck, while mooring operation is controlled from the wheelhouse.
