Reliable and functional at all times
Winches of Damen Marine Components
Automatic winches with variable speed
Thanks to our latest innovation in winch technology, variable speed drive, you can always haul or veer at the highest possible speed. The drive speed automatically adjusts depending on the requested force.
All our winches are mounted on the deck with just four foundation points. Because they all have the same standardised footprint, upgrading and replacing them is easier. The use of high-quality bearings, seals and stainless steel makes maintenance minimal in practice. Our tugger winches and capstans are developed for support work on all types of vessels. They are reliable, straightforward precision winches.
The simple, effective design of DMC winches minimises your maintenance costs. Rotating points are maintenance-free, gears are hardened and ground and capstans are mounted on a universal mounting flange.
Both electric and hydraulic winches have a pulling force of 5 to 40 tons. The pulling force of the capstans ranges from 3 to 15 tons. All our winches are available with line length and line force measurement, which comes in handy for escort duties in calm waters.
Standard, our towing winches have a pulling force of up to 30 tons, while anchor handling winches have a pulling force of 100 tons (with a braking force of up to 200 tons). Other (customised) specifications are, of course, possible.
Our hydraulic escort towing winches use an active haul-and-pay-out system instead of brakes, which is unique in the market. They can hold and turn the engine from zero to full speed with a variable line force setting from 10 to 100 tons on the motor. DMC winches are certified for escort operations in the toughest weather conditions.
