Anchor and Mooring Winches
BRÖHL anchor and mooring winches are designed as a robust steel welded construction. The spur-gear transmission is splash lubricated.
All shafts have been fitted with roller bearings, where the rope drum and cable lifter runs on high grade bronze bushings.
By request, the winches can be fitted with an integrated bolt up foundation. This saves the costs of the yard building a foundation construction.
Both the rope drum and chain pulley can be declutched and can be stopped and held in place using a band brake that can be both manually or optionally hydraulically actuated.
- Chain Size: 30 mm – 137 mm K3
- Pull (Rope Drum): 50 – 300kN
BRÖHL chain stoppers are designed to withstand a force equal to 100% of the chain breaking strength.
Mechanically and hydraulically actuated lashing devices are integrated into the function of the chain stopper.
BRÖHL special dredger winches can be found on the world’s largest seagoing dredgers and barges.
BRÖHL customises their winch package to fit any dredger type:
- Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers (TSHD)
- Cutter Dredgers
- Grab- and Profile Dredgers
- Backhoe Dredgers
The following winch types are deliverable:
For Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers:
- Draghead Winch
- Intermediate Winch
- Trunnion Winch
- Ladder Winch
- Anchor Boom Winch
- Anchor Hoisting Winch
For General Application for all Dredgers:
- Bow Connection Winch
- Spud Hoisting Winch
The winches are designed to withstand extreme operational demands 24/7.
All products are made with a high performance-spur gear transmission with forced lubrication and running on high-grade roller bearings. The gears are made of high alloy steel, hardened and ground where necessary.
The gear box is a steel welded construction. On the rope drum an optimised groove pitch ensures the longevity of the wire rope. As an option, it is also possible to have the winch fitted with LEBUS-Grooves.
BRÖHL specializes in meeting the heavy duty demands of the offshore industry.
Their product line consists of technically matured solutions for:
- Jack Up Rigs
- Semi Submersible Rigs
- Accommodations Units
- Floating, Production, Storage and Offloading vessels (FPSO)
- Anchor Handling Towing Vessels (AHTV)
- Special Barges
- Crane Ships
Typical products delivered to the offshore industry are:
BRÖHL winches are designed to withstand the chain or cable breaking strength (MBL) and are matched up with the drive that is best suited for the particular application:
- High Pressure Hydraulic
The product spectrum comprises of, but is not limited to:
- Rope Mooring Winches
- Chain Mooring Winches
- Traction Winches
- Storage Winches
- Towing Winches
- A&R Winches
- Stinger Winches
- Luffing and Hoisting Winches
BRÖHL´s rope and chain fairleaders are maintenance free, compact steel welded constructions, designed like the winches with a high safety factor with respect to the chain or cable strength.
Both horizontal and vertical mountings are possible with the BRÖHL push design concept. This uses two main hydraulic cylinders fitted into a compact frame as a drive for a mechanically guided traveling block. All systems are equipped with both static and dynamic load monitoring systems and a chain length measuring system that is independent of the main piston’s stroke.
Pipe Laying Davits
BRÖHL´s offers state of the art winch-davit systems mounted to a common frame with an optional swiveling head and load and rope length instrumentation. The davits can either be used as an individual unit or in conjunction with the others allowing for a controlled lifting of the pipe with regards to the pipe’s critical bending radius.
Being in contact with shipyards, ports and naval bases worldwide for decades, BRÖHL has developed a wide range of maritime installations for drydocking, and transferring ships and sections of manifold types.
BRÖHL performs supplies and services in all stages of the realization of maritime installation:
In the field of dry-docking BRÖHL has gathered experience in around 80 national and international projects, covering:
Electrically driven hoists lift and lower a platform as a docking basis for ships. Ship lifts can be designed as pier or pit buildings with end- or side transfer.
Rail bound carriages will be pulled by one or several winches over a slope in longitudinal or transverse directions.
Dual-level Transfer systems
Rail bound cradles transfer the ship off the platform to a pit-operated side transfer carriage, reaching parking- and repair berths on yard level.
Single-level Transfer systems
Transfer operations will be carried out in a single level yard, either by rail bound hydraulic bogies or rubber- wheeled multi-axle transporters.
Movements of transfer systems can also be carried out by separate mover units, as mobile winches, stationary winches or hydro mechanical linear gripper.
Gate winches, hauling winches or capstans with suitable rope guiding systems serve for positioning of floated-in ships. Electrically resp. hydraulically operated bilge blocks are provided for stabilizing docking manoevres.
