Product Detail

The capstan’s integral gearbox and motor assembly make it a self-contained unit, meaning that the necessary components are housed within a single unit. This design provides several advantages, including enhanced protection against the corrosive marine environment. By enclosing the machinery, the capstan is better shielded from the damaging effects of saltwater, moisture, and other environmental factors, ensuring its longevity and reliable performance.

The positioning of the horizontal capstan above the deck facilitates convenient access and operation. This allows for easier maintenance, inspection, and control, as operators can easily reach and interact with the capstan without the need for extensive maneuvering or access from below.

Marine Electric Horizontal Capstan Applications

Marine Electric Horizontal Capstans find widespread application in various marine operations, primarily for anchoring, mooring, and towing purposes. These capstans are commonly installed on large ships and vessels where their robust design and powerful performance are required.

  • Anchoring: The electric horizontal capstan provides the necessary pulling power to secure a vessel to the seabed during anchoring operations. It ensures a reliable and stable anchoring process, contributing to the safety and stability of the ship.
  • Mooring: In mooring operations, the capstan assists in securing the ship to a berth or dock. Its horizontal configuration and integral gearbox and motor assembly allow for efficient and controlled handling of mooring lines, ensuring the vessel remains securely in place.
  • Towing: Electric horizontal capstans are utilized in towing operations, where they aid in maneuvering and controlling the movement of other vessels or objects. The capstan’s power and robust construction make it well-suited for these demanding towing tasks.
