Capstans are used for safe and efficient handling of the mooring lines. Although they are mostly supplied as integrated part of our quick release mooring hook units, they often are produced as free standing vertical capstans as well. In these cases they are used in combination with for example bollards or basic quick release hooks. Our standard range of capstans are driven by high-quality electrical motors.
