Vestdavit look to the future
Using proven technology, the 2TDB-7000 davit system will offer single and dual point boat handling capability to ships that need to launch several boats over a short period, even in high seas. The high-efficiency unit is entirely compatible for use with the Vestdavit MissionEase system but is also ideal for refits where mission bays are not an option: the system can also be mounted on open decks that feature an extra foundation frame.
Specifically designed for flexibility, the 2TDB-7000 features dual point sliding booms, adjustable boat cradle and hook distance capability. The system is controlled with ease by a single operator and can handle RHIBS, USVs, AUVs, 11m length Navy RIBS and work boats of up to 14 tons. It is constructed in weight-efficient high tensile steel and is fully available for work even above sea state 5.
Safe boat handling is further ensured by a painter system automatically controlled by davit swing/winch movements, which allows the operator to concentrate on boat movements whilst being assured of the painter’s correct outreach and tension in all boat positions.
The 2TDB-7000 includes a dual winch system with independent, synchronized control, with each winch featuring a constant tension system for wave compensation and PLC ‘downstop’ to prevent overtravel. Other features that enhance both safety and efficiency include self-levelling capability for boats/hooks in both directions, independent shock absorbers and an integral ‘anti two block’ system to prevent hook blocks from coming into contact with booms.
