FOLS and Telescopic Davits Telescopic davits

We have designed built and commissioned the Fixed Outboard Launching Systems (FOLS) for Lifeboats and Tenders and Telescopic Davits for Rescue Boats and Life Rafts (in particular 20 Fixed Outboard Launching Systems (FOLS) with hydraulic winch suitable for partially enclosed lifeboats, each for a capacity of minimum 305 persons, and  n° 2 Telescopic Rescue Hydraulic Davits with electric winch suitable for Rescue Boats, each for a capacity of 6 persons).

The Fixed Outboard Launching System is designed in conjunction with a particular ship’s design that allows to install the boats in a fixed position outboard below the protrusion of the deck. The launching systems are of fixed type since the boats are directly launched and recovered from their stowed position without any travelling movement.

Main Characteristics: only gravity is used fort the launching, shorter embarkation time in case of emergency, less maintenance required.

The FOLS system on Carnival Horizon goes together with the Hydraulic Winch HW 200 for Lifeboats; this type is a new concept of hydraulic winch designed to lower by gravity and lift by hydraulic power the big boats of the modern passenger vessels. Its main characteristics are the continuous and progressive lowering speed control and the full redundancy assured by the stationary multi-disk hydraulic brake in conjunction with the hydraulic speed brake system.
