Vestdavit has developed and supplied a Mission Bay Handling System for Nexans Aurora. The vessel, which is being outfitted at Ulstein Verft in Norway, has been designed specifically to operate in rough conditions.
The full-size Vestdavit Mission Bay Handling System will be able to handle several workboats for launch from or recovery to either side of the ship, with one operator using a remote control to launch and recover the mission boat and perform all on-deck handling.
The davits to be used in combination with the Mission Bay Handling System are Vestdavit’s compact and reliable telescopic TDB-5000 units, which are equipped with a range of safety features such as shock absorbers, constant tension systems, remote controls and wire pullers.
In addition to the Mission Bay Handling System, Vestdavit is also delivering two H-9000 davits capable of handling a pair of Fassmer SLT 8.5 life/tender boats within the terms of the contract.
