Vestdavit wins RN order

Seawork exhibitor, Vestdavit has won the order to supply four PLR-5000 marine davits for the Royal Navy Fishery Protection Squadron vessels, HMS Severn and HMS Tyne, to keep the refitted 'Batch 1' River Class Offshore Patrol Vessels running into the far future.

HMS Severn and HMS Tyne typically spend 320 days a year in service, patrolling 80,000 square miles of sea up to 200 miles from the UK coastline, and on average conducting between two and four boardings per day. This makes davit systems not only essential components in the ability of these ships to conduct their missions, but their most important ‘weapons systems’.

The PLR-5000 davits allow the OPVs to carry, launch and recover the Royal Navy’s Pacific 24 RHIB which is significantly larger and more capable than the old Pacific 22 it replaced.

The deal covering the Batch 1 vessels is an especially sweet success for Vestdavit UK Area Sales Manager, William Goodall, who sailed on HMS Tyne during his Royal Navy career and conducted boardings from the 80m vessel.

UK yard BAE System is already part way through building five new ‘Batch 2’ River Class Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs) for the UK’s Ministry of Defence, with the first two vessels already delivered. All five of these ships will feature davit systems from Vestdavit, as the company continues to consolidate its relationship with the very important customer.

Vestdavit are on stand PG101
