D-FH - davit system for free-fall lifeboat
D-FH - davit system for free-fall lifeboat.
The system is fixed on the open deck and is suitable for launching a fully manned boat from the stowed position to the water level by means of gravity (free-fall).
If obstacles are in the water or if the water is not deep enough, the boat will be launched slowly by the A-frame-crane and hydraulic winch system, installed on the track (second means of rescue). The A-frame-crane can also recover the boat on board (manned with operation crew).
