Palfinger Marine and Harding Safety are beginning to reap the rewards of joining forces and have secured a new contract to provide lifesaving equipment and cranes for two fishing vessels being built at Tersan Shipyard in Turkey.

Bjørn Sturle Hillestad, global sales and marketing director at Harding, said: “Purchasing equipment from a single source creates new opportunities for our customers. Offering complete packages of deck and lifesaving equipment will save time, resources, and service visits for our clients.”

Each vessel will be equipped with two Palfinger Marine knuckle boom cranes, one A-frame fast rescue boat davit and one fast rescue boat. Harding Safety, which was acquired by Palfinger in June of this year, will supply the fast rescue boats.

The cranes were sold by Marsis, Palfinger Marine’s long-time partner in Turkey.

“Tersan Shipyard has been a long-time customer for our cranes and davits. With the acquisition of Harding, we are now able to offer Palfinger Marine davits and Harding boats as a single package to this customer,” said Marco Destro, sales manager for davit systems at Palfinger Marine.

The PKM 250 knuckle boom crane has a max. outreach of 12m and a lifting capacity of 2t and is designed for general cargo handling. The PRHE 25 A-frame fast rescue boat davit offers a safe working load of 2.75t with a maximum hoisting speed of 18.8 metres/min. The fast rescue boats type FRB 610 60 HP offer a maximum seating of eight persons and 22 knots maximum speed.

The equipment will be delivered to Tersan Shipyard in June and July 2017.
