Anchor-mooring winches / windlass


Anchor-mooring winches / windlasses


MacGregor's anchor-mooring winches, also called windlasses, consist of a combination of cable Lifter Unit (CU) and mooring winch (or mooring part).

For smaller chain sizes a common shaft design with cable lifter on same shaft of the mooring winch is available.  

All designs can be offered either in electric or hydraulic drive versions for chain sizes from ø34mm up to ø147mm (grade 3).


With the increase in environmental awareness more and more shipowners are choosing electric deck machinery for their vessels.
MacGregor can offer two different types of electric drive:
Variable frequency drive (VFD)
  • Utilises step-less control from zero to nominal speed, thereby ensuring smooth, accurate and safe operation
  • Power 380/440/690V AC 50Hz/60Hz
  • Flange mounted electric motors with protection IP56

 Pole changing type

  • Utilises a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and 3-speed motor which provides high tension and high slack rope speed while ensuring safe operation
