Shiphauling Systems

We design and build a range of winches and capstans for warping and hauling vessels along berths.

Winches can be deployed at each end of the berth with a rail and carriage system which acts as a ‘mule’ to haul the vessel in either direction. The winches can incorporate a Leadscrew Levelwind System for even spooling of the cable onto the drum.

Control options include simple foot switches, dock-mounted consoles, and handheld remote controls. One operator can oversee the entire warping process from a control console mounted at the quayside or on a floating pontoon. Capstans are often installed on docks for hauling in messenger lines, and can also be used to haul small vessels over short distances.
