Tech-Hub HANSA TECH-HUB FOCUS VESTDAVIT New davit system presented Vestdavit from Norway has introduced a new and flexible davit system that is optimized for multi-boat handling duties. According to the developer the 2TDB-7000 davit system will offer single and dual point boat handling capability to ships that need to launch several boats over a short period, even in high seas. The 2TDB-7000 includes a dual winch system with independent, synchronized control, with each winch featuring a con stant tension system for wave compensation and PLC ›downstop‹ to prevent overtravel. Other features that enhance both safety and efficiency include self-levelling capability for boats/hooks in both directions, independent shock absorbers and an integral ›anti two block‹ system to prevent hook blocks from coming into contact with booms. The unit is entirely compatible for use with the Vestdavit MissionEase system but is also suitable for refits where mission bays are not an option, the company stated. The system can also be mounted on open decks that feature an extra foundation frame. NAVTOR Teaming up with Weathernews An e-navigation company from inception, Navtor started life as a challenger to traditional navigation methods. Now their freshly signed collaboration agreement with Weathernews of Japan keeps them on course to redefine navigation, moving beyond charts and chores and into the very heart of vessel operations. Navtor will significantly upgrade its weather information offering within the route plan ning software NavStation, and WNI gets direct access to ENC and passage planning, further improving WNI’s service offering. The combined strength of Navtor and WNI enables the development of a ground-breaking artificial intelligence (AI) routing service. The new duo will apply their combined wealth of operational and weather data as a platform to create a new software application that transforms data into detailed, reliable and optimised decision-making tools with real-time capabilities. This novel combination has the potential to revolutionise route planning, efficiency and safety in the maritime industry, the partners said. Navtor introduced NavStation, the world’s first digital chart table, in 2014. As of spring of 2019, Navtor presents NavStation 5.0, with a new and further refined passage planner, a MARPOL Manager module, and an e-Publication Reader with access to other digital publications.
