Caley Ocean Systems contracted by Babcock to supply rescue boat davits for new Irish Naval Service ship. Electric Hoist For Winch
The all-weather Caley davits are designed for rapid deployment, enabling boats to be held in readiness and launched in seconds, even in Sea State 6 (5 metre (16ft) significant waves) conditions.
Crew safety is paramount to the davits handling system which features anti-pendulation control for pitch and roll damping and reduction of pendulum swing. During boat recovery, the towing boom positions the boat under the davit, eliminating boat yaw, while light auto tension winch control eliminates snatching during recovery.
The Caley systems for the INS patrol vessel comprise two C-frame davits with associated towing booms, central hydraulic power units and controls. Each C-frame davit is designed to perform the launch and recovery of a rigid inflatable boat weighing up to a 4.5Te SWL.
Stored in the davit's integral secure stowage boat cradle, launch and recovery operations are controlled from a single control station, mounted aft of the davit, allowing the operator a clear view of the davit boat and towing boom.
