North Sea Winches have recently delivered a stern anchor winch to A&P Tyne for fitment to ABC Maritime's chemical tanker Adfines Sea

The winch has a top layer pull of 17Te and a brake Load of 40Te and has been designed for fitment to vessels navigating the St Lawrence Seaway as regulations are tightened. The winch has capacity for 120 meters of 44mm diameter wire and 10 meters of 44mm chain.

American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) will ultimately oversee the requirements of vessels over 125 meters in length and built after 1975 to fit a Stern Anchor Winch.
