INNOVATIVE RESCUE-BOAT DAVITS FOR STENA HSS FERRIES

A leading European supplier of custom-built lifesaving equipment has recently delivered the first of a new series of rescue boat davit systems for installation on the first of Stena's three HSS high-speed catamaran ferries. The unique configuration of this HSS vessel has led to the adoption of two new systems consisting of underdeck trackway davits fitted into the two forward recesses and two single arm slewing davits into aft recesses both with restricted deck heights.
