Do you spend too much time on mooring? We designed and manufactured our capstans for safe and economic handling of vessels.

Capstans can greatly reduce the handling time needed for mooring. Simultaneously, they prevent heavy lifting of mooring lines. 
Our basic capstans is available from 1 ton up to 3 tons nominal pull. Often, capstans are integrated on the hook units. They can also be supplied as separate freestanding units or as add-on units.

Capstans benefits:

  • Certified for zones 1 and 2 or non-hazardous areas.
  • Gearbox greased for life.
  • 3-Phase squirrel cage induction motor with direct vertically mounted planetary gear. This motor reduces required output, torque and speed.
  • Foot switch and/or push button operation.
  • Local (non-)reversible type motor starter.
  • Optionally equipped with mechanical or electrical braking device.
  • Single and dual speed capstans available.
