The Company:
Schoellhorn-Albrecht is an industry leader in the design and manufacture of Mooring Equipment and Systems including Capstans, Anchor Windlasses, Deck Fittings and Vessel Access Systems. In addition to standard products, the firm specializes in designing and manufacturing castings, fabrications, and specialized machinery. Products can be designed and certified to ABS, LLOYDS, MIL, ISO, NAVSEA, ASTM, JIS, OCIMF, and NVR as required. The firm has 35 employees.
Recent Highlights / Deliveries / Contracts:
Schoellhorn-Albrecht has engineered and implemented a Programmable Control System designed for mooring and positioning into dry docks. The system can be applied to existing Capstans or Winch control systems. The company also develops Roller Fairleads and Panama Chocks that work in conjunction with synthetic mooring lines. Polished stainless steel rope surfaces and high strength composite rollers and sheaves provide non-abrasive rope surfaces which will extend synthetic rope lifespan. 
The Case:
Schoellhorn-Albrecht has expanded its’ product line again in 2015. Highlights from the Deck Machinery Division include a new Low Profile Capstan design and an enhanced Drive Control System for both Capstans and Winches. The new Low Profile Above Deck Capstan was developed in response to customer’s limited space below deck. It offers high efficiency planetary gearing, allowing for a smaller footprint, lower horsepower, lower power consumption, while providing tremendous pulling power. Schoellhorn-Albrecht also expanded its Vessel Access Systems with several aluminum Gangways and Accommodation Ladders. Recent deliveries include a telescopic accommodation ladder deployed by a Schoellhorn-Albrecht winch built for a US Navy Vessel and a fully self-stowing accommodation ladder with davit, tripping winches and related stowage equipment for a PSV.
