Electric Anchor handling towing winch is a machine which is used both for anchoring and towing operations for boats and ships, which usually has double or multiple drums placed in line or with waterfall configurations. If it is in a waterfall configuration, there will be a lower anchor handling drum and an upper towing drum.
It is driven by a marine specialized electric motor. With double or triple drums, one or two can be used for towing operations and the other can be used for vessel anchoring with the rotation of the drum to wind rope, and they can be called as anchor handling drum and towing drum. The anchor handling and towing winch can also be with gypsy wheel because some vessels use chain for anchorage, and the size of the chain wheel should comply with that of the chain used on the vessels, otherwise the chain jumping-off may happen during the anchoring operations, which may cause dangers.
This kind of winch usually has heavy load capacity compared with other winches, such as anchor winch, mooring winch and capstan winch. To guarantee vessel safety and stability and avoid risks and dangers under harsh offshore circumstances, the emergency release system should be equipped. The anchor handling towing winch can be set to a maximum permissible lone tension and the set point depends on the vessel loading conditions.
