The mooring operation plays an important role in the operation of ships, and offshore operations need to be equipped with sturdy and reliable mooring winches. Mooring winch will work effectively when the ship is berthed or docked, and has many functions such as drift, support and positioning during loading and unloading, and at the same time, it can adjust and compensate for the deviation caused by vibration with a constant tension.
What Are The Two Types of Mooring Winches?
Aicrane mooring winches can consist of up to three mooring drums with a nominal pulling force ranging from 5 tons to 100 tons. Depending on the power source, there are two main types of mooring equipment: electric and hydraulic winches.
Electric Mooring Winch for Sale
Compared with hydraulic winch, the electric mooring winch has the advantages of easy and quick installation, reliable operation, less maintenance, and lower risk of oil leakage or pollution. Therefore, it is a cost-effective choice for your ship.
|Model||Electric mooring winch|
|Load capacity||1~100 ton|
|Drum||Single or double|
|Protection level||IP 56|
According to the drum configuration, there are single drum, double drum and triple drum winches for you to choose. The electric motor of the single-drum electric winch drives the drum through the reducer, and a brake is installed between the electric motor and the input shaft of the reducer. In order to meet the needs of traction and rotation, there are double drum and triple drum winches.
In addition, the electric mooring winch machine can be equipped with frequency conversion control. The frequency conversion controlled electric winch is driven by a single-speed electric motor, which is controlled by a frequency converter. It can realize stepless speed change and torque control, with smooth start and stop. Contact us now to get the right electric mooring winch for your boat!

Other Mooring Winch Types
Windlass mooring winch
The anchor mooring winch is a combined winch equipment, which plays the role of anchoring and mooring.
The main advantage of the mooring winch and windlass is that it not only saves manufacturing and installation costs, but also saves a lot of deck space. Therefore, in the case of limited deck size, the windlass and mooring winch is a great choice.
Mooring winch with warping head
The winch can be provided with one or two warping heads on the end of the winch shaft for handling line. The warping head is optional according to your requirements.
Self Tension Mooring Winch
The marine mooring winch can be equipped with self-tensioning, constant tensioning system, which can adjust the retracting and unwinding of the winch drum in time according to the change of the rope tension, so that the tension can be kept at an ideal value. The control of the automatic tension mooring winch is all completed by the automatic system, which not only saves manpower, but also has high reliability.
In addition, we also provide explosion proof mooring winch, automatic tension mooring winch, aft mooring winch, etc. for customers to choose. If you are interested, please feel free to contact us!

Technical Requirements of Mooring Winch For Ships
Drum load – When running at the corresponding nominal speed, the load of the drum should not be greater than 33% of the designed rope breaking load.
Holding load – The supporting load should not be less than 80% of the design rope breaking load.
Recovery load – The recovery load should not be less than 50% of the drum load.
Release load – The release load should not be greater than 50% of the design rope breaking load.
1. Tensile strength of 1 520 N/mm and 1 667 N/mm round strand steel wire rope can be used when designing the drum. Synthetic fibers or other types of ropes can also be used.
2. The diameter of the drum shall meet the following requirements:
Use round stranded wire rope: the diameter of the drum should not be less than 16 times the designed rope diameter;
Use polycool or polyphthalamide rope: the diameter of the drumshould not be less than 6 times the designed rope diameter;
Use polypropylene rope: the diameter of the drum should not be less than 4 times the designed rope diameter.
3. The length of the drum shall meet the following requirements:
The length of the drum of normal capacity should be able to wrap the full length of the designed rope and not exceed 5 layers;
The length of the large-capacitydrum should be able to wrap the full length of the designed rope and not exceed 8 layers;
In order to prolong the service life of the rope, heavy load should not be applied when the rope wound on the drumexceeds 4 layers. It is recommended to use a double drum, and the number of rope layers in a drum for storing the rope can be increased.
4. The height of the flange of the drum shall meet the following requirements:
When all the ropes are wound on adrum of normal capacity, the height of the flange beyond the outer rope should not be less than 1.5 times the rope diameter;
The large-capacity drum should be designed so that the outer rope cannot exceed the height of the flange when all the ropes are stored on the drum. The ropes of each layer should be stacked on top of each other, and no rope diameter should be offset between two adjacent layers.
5. Control braking device
The electric mooring winches must be equipped with an automatic control braking device. When the joystick or handwheel is moved to the stop or braking position or the winch is without power, the control braking device should automatically brake.
The braking device must be able to withstand 1.5 times the load of the drum, and be able to stop the rotation of the drum at the maximum speed without failure.
For winches of other drive types, they can adopt a suitable braking device, which should also be able to withstand 1.5 times the drum load.
6. Drum brake
Each winch needs to be equipped with a drum brake device.
For winches with warping heads or double drum mooring winches, a clutch should be set between the driving device and the drum.
8. Warping head
The winches can be equipped with or without a warping head, and the shape of the warping head should meet the requirements of GB 7390.
9. Rope spooling device
If the customer proposes, an automatic rope spooling device can be installed on the winch.
Winch Delivery And Installation
Delivery of Mooring Winches
The winch products are generally packaged with plastic film to protect them from rain. Electrical and other smaller parts are packed in standard export-use non-fumigation wooden boxes or plywood boxes, and are reinforced with steel plates to prevent damage.
Installation of Mooring Winches
Our company has its own installation and after-sales team, which can provide customers with after-sales service in time. If the customer requires, we can send 1-2 engineers to the site for installation instructions. The customer is responsible for the specific expenses, including round-trip air tickets, visa fees, local accommodation and transportation, and daily service fees.
The winch has the function of retracting, holding and storing the rope on the drum, and this kind of ship mooring equipment can also be used to winch the rope.
When the ship is mooring, fix the mooring line at the end of the ship.
The mooring winch system adjusts the length of the mooring rope to suit the mooring mode of each port and compensate for changes in draft and tide.
The winch keeps the position of the vessel free from the influence of the environment or inertial forces.
Store mooring lines when not in use.
The main brake slips when the rope is under high load to protect the mooring rope, winch, device and structure from overload and damage.
Ship to ship mooring
Single point mooring
The winch is a customized product designed according to the different requirements of customers, so there is generally no inventory.
The default voltage is 3phase 380V 50hz, but according to the requirements of different countries, 220V-480V, 50hz/60hz can be customized. Customers only need to inform the applicable voltage in advance.
Currently we have overseas offices in the Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. We also seek agents in other countries.
