Palfinger Marine has been chosen to deliver a major deck equipment package for Nexans cable laying vessel, Aurora.
Palfinger has already reported to deliver Abandon and Recovery (A&R) winches, A-Frame, knuckle boom cranes and overhead travelling gantry cranes to the Aurora.
The new delivery agreement consist of two LBT 935 lifeboats with the belonging davits. The lifeboats are arranged to accommodate 64 persons each, with a person weight of 98kg and seat width of 530mm.
This makes the vessel prepared for the different regulations and worldwide operation.
In addition, Palfinger supplies one life raft davit on each side of the vessel. This is design to handle up to 25 persons life rafts.
“Having a single supplier of complete packages with cranes, winches and lifesaving appliances saves customers time and money, and reduces complexity in their procurement processes,” says Bjørn Erik Eliassen, regional sales director.
Delivery of the equipment will be during the spring of 2020.
