Movable windlass (FPSO)

Flexible with regards to speed and load. In a movable windlass installation each of the mooring lines has its own fairlead and stopper.

In a movable windlass installation each of the mooring lines has its own fairlead and stopper. A single windlass moves along the frame to tension each chain in turn, the stoppers are actuated and locked on to the chain, transferring the mooring loads to the hull. An alternative system has a triple windlass, one lifter to each mooring, with associated stoppers and fairleads. The movable windlasses can be delivered with a pull and speed capacity to suit customers needs.
