A diesel-driven windlass is a machine that operates the ship's anchor chain, allowing it to be lifted and lowered by the Hawser. It is designed for use with up to 90 mm anchor chains. It is driven directly by a diesel engine through a shaft. Both windlass and diesel engine have passed IACS class certification.
These include steel construction, gears, clutches and brakes that exceed the working load requirements, and corrosion resistance.
Adapt to customer's application and Special Operation Requirements. The twin windlass features a rugged design and heavy duty bronze bearings. The operating mechanism of the brake and clutch is designed for easy and safe manual operation. The brakes are easy to adjust. The design of the hoist makes lubrication and inspection of all parts easy.
