Anchoring, the process of having the ship stopped, at mid-water or at the port. An anchor is used to hold the ship steady and unaffected from the strong waves. The anchoring process involves dropping and lifting the anchor. The anchor winch is used for such situations.
Every anchor winch is designed with a particular vessel size in mind. Other factors that determine the type of product that you select include chain selection, windage, and anchor size. At Hossain Dockyard and Engineering Ltd, we have a wide range of capstans and windlasses to suit different ship models. You can choose between a horizontal and vertical anchor winch depending on your individual requirements. However, bigger ships tend to favor horizontal windlass over vertical windlass.
