This paper is presented in response to the apparent need for an orderly approach to the preparation of specifications for and the design of mooring/warping winches. In this regard a baseline of concepts and relationships has been developed from which, considering existing constraints, reasonable mooring machinery design criteria may be established. It is considered fundamental that a study of mooring systems be approached from several interdependent view points, thus this presentation has approached the subject of mooring machinery in the following phases: Operation, Design and Application.
