A complete set of DMC winches was delivered to a magnificent tugboat

02 December 2020

DMC produces a range of in-house developed winches. Each designed and fitted to be reliable and fully functional in the harshest conditions at all times.

For this recent project, DMC delivered the bow escort towing winch, aft towing winch and two anchor winches. Our hydraulic escort towing winches are the only ones on the market that don’t use brakes, but use an active pay-out and haul-in system instead. They can hold and veer the motor from zero to full speed at a variable line force setting from 10 to 100 tonnes on the motor. The DMC escort winches are fully compliant with the class rules for performing escort operations in ‘open sea’ with high waves. Production and testing of these winches were performed in our wholly owned production facility in Jiangyin, China.

DMC anchor winches, both with and without capstans, have been created to handle frequent anchoring, and effectively outperform the class requirements. Their superior performance in holding the chain is enhanced by the relatively small chain lifter diameter, enabling a firm grip.
