To complete the full range of lifeboat requirements Survitec offer a range of ship and rig davit launching appliances for lifeboats, designed to withstand long periods of operation under adverse and extreme conditions in highly corrosive marine and offshore environments.
Meeting the stringent requirements of IMO/SOLAS, LSA regulations as well as the European Council Directive 96/98 EC on Marine Equipment (M.E.D.). Survitec lifeboat davits are manufactured to ensure they remain inherently strong, reliable and perform in the toughest environments.
Since the safe working load and outreach of the davit is normally determined by the size of the lifeboat, Survitec offers not only the standard range of lifeboat davits required but can also offer bespoke adapted versions to meet individual vessel needs. Operating the Davit is simple, there is a motor starter built into the davit arm which operates at the main switch. In case of a power failure the user is still able to operate the davit manually using the crank handle of the winch.
