The HWVC 3500 series is designed for horizontal handling of chain-only anchor rodes while offering an independent vertical capstan and/or side drum for the retrieval of a secondary rope and/or chain rode, or to assist with docking and other procedures.
The HWVC 3500 can be provided in several different configurations including dual chainwheel and dual capstan or any variation thereof (e.g., single starboard chainwheel and single port drum, etc). The 3500 series has been a pillar of the Maxwell P&S range since its introduction in 1987.
