WCI Pilot & Embarkation Ladders:


We recently set the first and only workshop in Panama that can manufacturing certified pilot and embarkation ladders according to IMO regulations and also customized ladders according to customer’s instructions.    Pilot Ladders are designed to enable a maritime pilot to embark and disembark from a ship safely against a vertical portion of the ship’s hull.   These are approved to specifications set by the International regulations such as SOLAS and IMO.  All our ladders are manufactured according to the ISO 799-1:2019,  IMO Resolution A.1045(27), IMO MSC/Circ. 1428 and Solas 74 Convention as amended, Regulations V/23, X/3.  

·         Designed for embarking or disembarking of pilots from the vessel

·         Each wooden part is made of hardwood, free from knots.  Our wood is not treated or coated with paint, varnish or other coatings, which either change the friction coefficient or hide the natural grain.

·         Each side rope is mildew-resistant manila rope meeting ISO 1181:2004 and a breaking strength of at least 24 k.   The specification of the diameter of side ropes is 20 mm (63 mm circumference).

·         Each stainless steel part is of a marine grade alloy with a corrosion resistance at least equal to grade “4401-316-00I” in ISO 15510:2014.

·         Each plastic material has a type that retains at least 30 % of its original tensile strength and at least 80 % of its original impact strength when subjected to the one-year outdoor weathering test described in Method A of ISO 877-2:2009.

·         Each side of the ladder consists on a continuous loop of rope with the joint above the top step or below the bottom step.

·         Bottom step has continuous rope at both sides.

·         Each Wood Step has the following dimension: 525mm x 115mm x 28mm.

·         Each Rubber Step has the following dimension: 525mm x 115mm x 28mm.

·         Each Spreader (Prevention Step) has the following dimension: 1800mm x 115mm x 28mm.

Mooring Ropes & Crane Wire Ropes:


We have a wide stock of European and Asiatic brands of PP and combine fiber ropes 220 MTRS lenght for ship´s security.  A mooring is any permanent structure to which a vessel may be secured.    A ship is secured to a mooring to forestall free movement of the ship on the water.     Mooring is often accomplished using thick ropes called mooring lines or hawsers. The lines are fixed to deck fittings on the vessel at one end and to fittings such as bollards, rings, and cleats on the other end.

Mooring requires cooperation between people on a pier and on a vessel. Heavy mooring lines are often passed from larger vessels to people on a mooring by smaller, weighted heaving lines. Once a mooring line is attached to a bollard, it is pulled tight. Large ships generally tighten their mooring lines using heavy machinery called mooring winches or capstans.

  • Certifications: Lloyd´s Register.
  • Reference Standards: ISO 2307:2010 / ISO 9554:2010 / EN ISO 10556:2009(2015).
  • Diameters: 48-80MM.
  • Mooring Tails 11 and 22 MTRS.


We recently set the first and only workshop in Panama that can perform all kind of ending jobs for Galvanized Wire Ropes for crane and mooring lines.    In the lifting and rigging industries, wire rope is attached to a crane or hoist and fitted with swivels, shackles or hooks to attach to a load and move it in a controlled matter. It can also be used to lift and lower elevators, or as a means of support for suspension bridges or towers.

Components of a wire rope:

Wire: These are the smallest component of wire rope and they make up the individual strands in the rope. Wires can be made from a variety of metal materials including steel, iron, stainless steel, monel, and bronze. The wires can be manufactured in a variety of grades that relate to the strength, resistance to wear, fatigue resistance, corrosion resistance, and curve of the wire rope.

Strands: consists of two or more wires arranged and twisted in a specific arrangement. The individual strands are then laid in a helical pattern around the core of the rope.   Strands made of larger diameter wires are more resistant to abrasion, while strands made of smaller diameter wires are more flexible.

Core: It runs through the center of the rope, it is consider the “heart of the wire” and supports the strands and helps to maintain their relative position under loading and bending stresses. Cores can be made from a number of different materials including natural or synthetic fibers and steel

Lubrication: is applied during the manufacturing process and penetrates all the way to the core. Wire rope lubrication reduces friction as the individual wires and strands move over each othe and provides corrosion protection and lubrication in the core, inside wires, and outside surface

  • Certifications: Bureau Veritas / Lloyd´s Register / CCS.

  • Diameters: 6-38MM.

  • Contructions: 6×19 / 6×36 / 19×7 / 35×7.

  • Mooring Line and Crane Wire Ropes.

  • Wire Rope Slings.
