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

The capstans can greatly reduce the handling time needed for mooring. They simultaneously prevent heavy lifting of mooring lines. 
In the standard versions the capstans are available from 1 ton up to 3 tons nominal pull. Capstans are often integrated on the hook units. If so required we can also supply the capstans as separate freestanding units or as add-on units.

Capstans benefits:

  • Certified for zones 1 and 2 or non-hazardous areas.
  • Maintenance free.
  • 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.
