Escort winches - hydraulic (Tugs)

Providing you with sensitive control. Our escort winches are designed and sized to meet your operational needs.

Our hydraulic escort winches are delivered with single or double drums and can be specified with anchor chain wheels and warping ends. The key point is sensitive operation. Towline can be paid out or hauled in under full control without the line going slack using the auto-tension system. Recovery force is adjustable in the range of 0 - 120 tonnes, and rendering force adjustable from 0 - 175 tonnes. The powerful brake can hold 420 tonnes.

In the wheelhouse, the operator will normally have a direct sightline to the winch, towline and the ship being assisted. A display panel clearly shows the towline tension, the length of line out and the speed of hauling or rendering. It also provides monitoring of the quick release function, winch mode settings, power pack monitoring and alarms.
