New Windlass- advice

My present Lofrans windlass is aging and I want to install a new windlass. I can not determine the model but it is something like Lofrans Albatross with 1500 w .

I have a total weight of ground tackle of 90 m of chain plus anchor 33kg= TOTAL 240 kg still under spec. For the new windlass
I have found a good offer on VETUS Napoleon (rebranded Lofrans) with following spec.>
Nominal lifting power: 350 kg Maximum 950 kg
Haulage speed: 18-24 meter/minut
Free Fall Speed up to 150 ft/min
Increased paying out speed when electrically operated
Reversible DC electric motor, available in 12V or 24V DC
Corrosion resistant motor housing, watertight to IP66
E-terminal for manual switching of the electric motor
Nominal power: 1000 W, maximum 1850 W
Current Consumption: 70-110 A (12V), 40-60 A (24V)
Main shaft bearings made of stainless steel (AISI 440)
Material of gipsy: nickel plated bronze

When calculating with times 3 for safety, 240kg x 3=720 kg. Which is below max.lifting power of 950 kg.for the windlass
On the paper Vetus NApoleon should do the job,...Am I missing something?
