Survitec has used Seawork to publicise its recently launched new range of boat launching davits.

Engineered with its European-based partner, a company with more than 20 years’ experience in manufacturing davits, the Survitec range includes different davit types suitable for liferafts, rescue boats and fast rescue craft.

Designed and manufactured in Europe, to European standards and with many elements made using European marine grade stainless steel, the davits have been created to withstand the harsh environments in which they operate.

Marine grade stainless steel is known for its resistance to corrosion, which is why key elements have been made from the alloy, including the remote-control function, shackles, securing wires and cover plate.

Further protection against corrosion is by way of a three-layer paint system that can adheres to Norway’s stringent NORSOK standards developed for the petroleum industry.

A grooved drum guides the fall into the correct position and packs it tightly within the drum as the fall is wound up and down during the lifting and lowering of the raft or boat. This ensures that the top layers of the fall wires do not force themselves into the lower layers, avoiding abrasion and possible bights of the wire, thus eliminating any jerking or snatching motions when the liferaft or rescue boat is lowered.

The davits are supplied as a fully tested and assembled unit, which can be installed in or out of drydock. Providing the pedestals have been installed and tested, a Survitec technician can assemble and commission the davit when the ship is in port, reducing the ship’s downtime and costs.

Survitec also supported Seawork this year through a number of patronage initiatives. It sponsored the drinks reception hosted by the Society of Maritime Industries (SMI) and had a strong presence outside the exhibition hall, including branding of the Seawork Harbour Manager’s headquarters.

Survitec is also ensured the safety of the Seawork Harbour Managers by providing them with Crewfit 150N HF lifejackets which have heavy-duty covers, external reflective tape and indicator windows – making them perfect for use by the team while working on the Seawork pontoons.

The company also heavily promoted its new SOLAS 360 and ENERGY 360 single service supplier concepts.
