Red Rooster Lifting were requested to supply a single 3 tonne capstan winch to be used and required to be suitable to assist mooring operations on a raised jetty head. The berth where this lifting solution was to be installed was predominantly used by large passenger and cargo vessels.
The winch specification required an electric motor with variable speed of up to 20 m/min. It was also pertinent that equipment featured an IP66 foot pedal remote control for both clockwise and anti-clockwise rotation as well as a load limiter to ensure that the winch is not overloaded.
The EMCE C 305 E 3 tonne electric capstan winch was the perfect solution to meet the customers requirements and was delivered to the customer including a 3 year warranty.
