Norsafe NDA luffing davit for rescue boats

The Norsafe NDA luffing davit is specifically designed for safe and efficient launch and retrieval of fast rescue boats. It is intended for long term, reliable operation in harsh and hazardous marine and offshore environments. The davit system is designed in accordance with latest Solas and IMO requirements.

The system provides:

  • Hoisting of the rescue boat in maximum load condition by electric/ hydraulic motor
  • Gravity lowering of the loaded rescue boat independent of external power supply
  • Retrieval of the fully loaded rescue boat by manual hoisting

Optional function:

The davit system has a hydraulically driven, mechanical luffing jib and an electric driven winch with single wire fall.  Luffing and dead ship luffing functions are driven by a small hydraulic power pack. The hydraulic system is equipped with a stored power unit - which allows full launching of the rescue boat in “dead ship” conditions.

The davit is designed to achieve optimum performance in terms of safety and reliability, and minimal maintenance levels.  The only external components and connections are the electrical starter cabinet, that should be located under deck.  Electrical power supply must be connected to the starter cabinet, and further to the davit. The davit is designed to minimise noise emission and provide straightforward service access.
