The hydraulic pivoting davits of the PFHS series are so-called “plug-in and play units” all guaranteeing easy installation on board.
The PFHS davit is a freestanding deck mounted davit consisting of a base frame, davit arm, cylinders, winch and hydraulic power pack unit.
The system is suitable for safe and efficient launching and recovery of a fully manned rescue boat against unfavourable conditions of trim of up to 10 degrees and a list of up to 20 degrees either way.|
In normal conditions, the PFHS davit series operate as follows:
- Pivoting: Hydraulically
- Lowering: By means of gravity
- Hoisting: Electric 18m/min
The PFHS 15 davit can optionally be supplied with the automatic release hook for rescue boat, type CAR 35.
