ASK THE EXPERT: DAVITS & HYDRAULICS
Being a stabilizer company, what systems do you work with?
As we are an independent company, we work with all equipment. Our engineers are trained to work with all familiar manufacturers such as: Quantum, Naiad, Vosper, Koop-Nautic, Trac and Wesmar. We carry a large amount of spares for most stabilizer systems so we can attend to clients without delay.
Do you work in any other areas besides stabilizers?
We also have a full deck equipment division, supporting all manufacturers of deck cranes, beam cranes, side accommodation stairs, passerelles, shell doors and lift platforms. We are fully equipped to attend any vessel’s requirements from functionality issues and rope changes to full 5 year survey and equipment re-build. We are also the European Service Centre for all Nautical Structures equipment. We carry out full service work on all anchor winches and windlasses with full support from Muir on their equipment. We also offer:
- Thruster - fault finding and service
- Hydraulic system flushing and particle analysing
- System diagnostics and onsite hydraulic pump testing
- Certified crane load testing
- Onsite hose and pipe fabrication and installation
To name a few...
You are based in Mallorca, do we have to come to you for these services?
No, we are fully equipped to travel anywhere in Europe and further if required. Our service vehicles are equipped with pretty much all we would need to undertake any project. This allows us to carry out our works quickly and efficiently with little or no assistance required. We have worked in most shipyards throughout Europe for many years building good relationships along the way.
