D-FO - davit of fixed outreach type for offshore
D-FO - davit of fixed outreach for platforms or for very big life boats on cruise vessels.
The davit system is fixed on open deck and is suitable for lowering a fully manned boat from the stowed position to the water level by means of gravity.
In order to allow a lowering and hoisting procedure as appropriate, the system is equipped with an electric winch. Hoisting of the fully equipped boat, including the hoisting crew, can be realised by means of the incorporated electric motor.
In case of power failure or malfunctioning of the electric system, hoisting can also be realised manually. For this purpose the winch has been equipped with a crank handle square shaft. Upon placing of the hand crank the motor drive is automatically blocked.
In case of need “green sea"-lashings will be provided to prevent damage or loss of boats on account of rogue waves.
