Hydraulic Windlass

1. Background for the project:

Recently Tytan Marine won the contract to supply all the deck machinery(cranes, windlasses, winches, etc) for three new sea ships building.

2. Design Standard:

These three ships be designed and builded under NK class, so the windlass be required with newest NK regulation.

3. Configuration:

This kind of windlass be designed with one gypsy / chain wheel for anchor handling, one mooring drum and one warping head for mooring works.

4. Main components:

The windlass contains one hydraulic motor, one main gear and one pinion, one main shaft, two manual brakes and two manual clutches, etc.

5. Arrangement on ship:

Two windlasses be installed on the bow of ship, and one is right hand then another one is left hand with symmetrical design. And two windlasses share one hydraulic power pack unit.
