Oceanwide Davits

Follow us
Oceanwide Davits

To operate a Self Propelled Hyperbaric Lifeboat (SPHL) during emergency evacuation and normal sea trials Oceanwide SaS (OCW) has developed a special type of davit.

A typical confi guration consists of:

  • Two davit arms
  • Installed shock absorbing system on the  davit arms
  • Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU)
  • A set of accumulators to operate the system in “Dead Ship” conditions
  • Winch with hydraulic motor and centrifugal brake
  • Top side deck supports with stainless steel saddle to support the SPHL in stowed position

The HPU and accumulators are normally placed in a closed environment near the davits, as option they can be placed in a 10’ container on deck.


Some benefits from the new Oceanwide SaS (OCW) davit system are:

  • More effective installation on board by reducing the full weld to deck of the 20mm foundation plates by 45 %
  • Reduced number of main cylinders (1 cylinder per arm)
  • Shock absorbers integrated in davit arm design and pre- installed Reduced number of external hydraulic pipes from HPU Room to Boat deckWinch with lower design, enabling same winch to be used in port and star-board configurations
  • Optional, davit configuration for reduced deck width
  • The complete davit system can be transported in a single 40’ open top container to its destination.
