Combined Windlass-Mooring Winch
MacGregor introduces the next generation range of deck machinery designed to further improve safety, reliability and performance
With extensive experience dating back to 1875 and the combination of proven Pusnes, Hatlapa and TTS technologies, MacGregor introduces the next generation deck machinery.
A clear focus was to further improve the reliability and performance of the winches,” says Christian Heyden, Director Deck Machinery and Steering Gear Engineering. “Due to the reduced varieties of components we were also able to simplify maintenance, reduce the amount of consumables and make life easier for crew and operators.”
"Based on the results of comprehensive FE-Analysis we have optimized and aligned the size range of the winch portfolio for a better operational performance."
“And due to the improved assembly structure, installation and maintenance is also much easier. Smart features like the intelligent winch control block and the motor protection integrated in the chain stopper we offer further opportunities to improve the safety of the anchor operation significantly," Heyden adds.
The windlass and mooring winches are available with a modular HPU (MacGregor type MHW) and full electrical drive (MacGregor type MEW).
The delivery of the first winches will be in 2022
