Product introduction

The NED-DECK MARINE fixed outrigger davits have been designed for  long time operation under adverse and extreme circumstances in a highly  corrosive marine environment.

The FPR outrigger davit is a freestanding deck mounted davit consisting of a fixed davit arm with built-on winch.
The system is suitable for safe and efficient launching and recovery of a fully manned rescue boat with relevant equipment.

Launching of the fully manned rescue boat from its stowed position to the water level is realised by means of gravity.
The launching procedure can be controlled in two ways, either by means of a remote control wire from within the rescue boat or by lifting the  brake handle of the winch directly.
Recovery of the fully equipped rescue boat inclusive launching crew is realised by means of the electric driven winch.
In case of a power failure or malfunctioning of the electric system,  hoisting can also be done manually by using the crank handle of the  winch.

In order to reduce maintenance to a minimum, all shafts and pins are  made of stainless steel and provided with self-lubricated bushings.

The FPR series meets the latest IMO/SOLAS requirements and LSA Code,  the European Council Directive 96/98 EC on Marine Equipment (M.E.D.) as  well as the specific offshore requirements.
