Anchor and Mooring Winches

BRÖHL anchor and mooring winches are designed as a robust steel welded construction. The spur-gear transmission is splash lubricated.
All shafts have been fitted with roller bearings, where the rope drum and cable lifter runs on high grade bronze bushings.

By request, the winches can be fitted with an integrated bolt up foundation. This saves the costs of the yard building a foundation construction.

Both the rope drum and chain pulley can be declutched and can be stopped and held in place using a band brake that can be both manually or optionally hydraulically actuated.

  • Chain Size: 30 mm – 137 mm K3
  • Pull (Rope Drum): 50 – 300kN

Chain Stoppers

BRÖHL chain stoppers are designed to withstand a force equal to 100% of the chain breaking strength.
Mechanically and hydraulically actuated lashing devices are integrated into the function of the chain stopper.
