Anchor Mooring Capstan

OUCO certifications

Capstan is a piece of marine towing equipment that has a vertically mounted warping head, which winds but doesn’t store rope. The capstan can be manually, electrically or hydraulically driven, and consists mainly of reduction box, drumhead and foundation. Capstans are applied to mooring operation, positioning of vessels, anchoring operation, etc.

Main Features and Advantages


Both mooring capstan and anchor capstan
Simple operation.
Small volume, light weight and high load.
Chain diameter: 22mm ~ 102mm
Pull force: Φ30~250kN

Custom Capstans
We offer customized manufacturing for our marine capstans. To do so, OUCO need to know the drive type-electric electro-hydraulic, or diesel hydraulic, whether a chain wheel and remote control are needed, preferences of classification society, and the rated loading, nominal speed, and holding loading.

OUCO capstans have been applied to 14,000 kW oceans salvage tug, research mother ship for 10,000 deep ROV and ocean mooring testing platform, etc.

Anchor Mooring Capstan

Mooring Equipment and Its Function

Anchor Mooring Capstan is a Mooring Equipment dedicated to mooring vessels, designed for use on water transport vessels, steamships or supply vessels.

The mooring winch winds the cable, rope, wire or chain through the rotating winch drum. We can connect it to mooring points such as: unloading points, mooring bollards in docks and ports, buoys, etc.

The OUCO electric mooring capstan can rotate the winch drum while winding the rope, and the rope collection efficiency is higher.

What tests does capstan need to do?

OUCO has stringent checks and higher quality requirements for every capstan produced:

  • None load test, Working Load test, Brake test

How to check Mooring Rope?
  • Wire and cable, whether there are rust and disconnection
  • Normal fiber optic cables, wear and corrosion
  • We should check synthetic fiber ropes for wear and thickness

In use, check the load of the mooring rope, keep the rope tension appropriate, not too tight or too loose, it can prevent the rope breaking.

Check the tail size and material of the mooring line for uniform loading.

When you have completed the mooring operation, remember to check the load on the mooring line from time to time.

If the load conditions of the vessel change and it is necessary to keep the load within the normal range, loosen or tighten ropes to adjust.

In addition, the condition of the rope material is also important, such as the friction and changes in thickness, to avoid accidents.
