SW-50 Rig Type Davit for GES 50 Mk III - Interconnected

The system consists of interconnected skid way structures and a lifting beam where a trolley and an electric winch is installed (Crane class: 1Am according to FEM). The winch is used to lower/hoist lifeboat through an opening in the davit structure. Sideways movement of the trolley is without load. 

For this solution, it is intended that the trolley and winch are only installed on the lifting beam during installation of the lifeboats. When all lifeboats have been installed and tested, the trolley and winch can be removed and stored onshore. The winch is otherwise fully winterized and equipped with DNV 2.7.3 approved lifting lugs.

The system provides:

  • Free fall launch of the fully loaded lifeboat. 
  • Free fall launch of the fully loaded lifeboat with 17º list and 17º trim, completely
    independent of any power supply. 
  • Recovery of the boats.
