Ned-Deck Marine secures repeat orders for movable davitsEquipment & Technology // May 17, 2012
Ned-Deck Marine has secured repeat orders for the supply of movable hydraulic A-frame pivoting davits onboard PX121 design PSVs at a leading Norwegian shipyard.
The davit is located behind a bulkhead under the wheel house to free-up deck space onboard the PSV; and to protect it and the fast rescue boat it is designed to launch from harsh weather conditions.
By means of a track, the davit can be moved to its deployment position, ready for launch and recovery of the fast rescue boat. It is moved using a hydraulic motor, operated by means of a joystick on a remote control. In dead ship situation it is even possible to move the davit from the inside to the outside position by means of stored power. The davit system is fully in compliance with the latest SOLAS regulations.
After successful delivery and installation of the first two sets of the movable davits for Blue Ship Invest, the Norwegian shipyard awarded repeat orders to Ned-Deck Marine.
The davits are also suitable for use in Arctic conditions.
