Navalimpianti Tecnimpianti designs and produces embarkation davits of every kind: semi-gravity, multi pivot, roller track, rescue boat and life raft, free-fall and NOD. The company is also the only producer of telescopic davits worldwide.
Navalimpianti is also an international leader in the design and supply of other marine equipment for passenger and merchant ships, navy, offshore and mega yachts.
Telescopic embarkation davits
Our telescopic davits with reserves of energy consist of two arms welded at the ceiling of the upper deck, enabling the promenade deck to be kept completely clear. This is particularly useful not only when this deck serves as the passengers’ walking area, but also during embarkation in emergencies.
Sliding glass covers
Navalimpianti’s Sky-Dome™ sliding covers allow full multi-seasonal employment of ships. The sliding glass cover is composed of sliding panels, each having a welded plating alloy structure on which the glass sheets are mounted underside the panels. Gear-motors move the panels backwards and forward.
Cargo access equipment for Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax ferries
Navalimpianti cargo access equipment for Ro-Ro and Ro-Pax ferries include bow visor, stern and side doors ramps, quarter ramps, shell doors, covers and internal doors, car decks, hoistable and tiltable ramps, and elevators. Our solutions for cargo access cover a wide range of products tailored for the needs of our customers, from the flexibility of the cargo spaces up to the handling of each type of vehicle, allowing efficient and cost-effective systems.
Navalimpianti cargo access equipment features integrated hydraulic and automation systems, to ensure problem-free working and easy operation.
Valve remote control systems
We can supply valve remote control on-board any ship, to help ensure the safety of passengers and crew. We provide reliable equipment for the operation of ballast valves, fuel transfer, sea chest emergency closing, and cross-flooding valves.
Hydraulic actuators and valve control systems
Our experience, gained from work with over 80,000 controlled valves, is today included in RAM – TORK – TORKLT linear and rotating hydraulic actuators and in the control systems Standard, Winners E and Winners H.
In particular the Navalimpianti Winners type is a valve remote control system with electro-hydraulic actuators. The relevant hydraulic actuator is installed on each valve and a micro electro-hydraulic unit is directly connected.
The system architecture is founded on three main technological choices: electro-hydraulic actuators (ETork and ERam), intelligent unit controller cabinets (WCC) and a non-proprietary network based on Lontalk protocol developed by Echelon.
There is no need for hydraulic linkages between the hydraulic station and actuator; the connections are electrical. There is also no traditional hydraulic power pack. Each actuator, either of linear or rotating type, is equipped with a micro electro-hydraulic unit.
Passenger and naval ship access and handling systems
We also supply access and handling systems for passenger and naval ships and special applications for the marine field. These include side doors and tender embarkation platforms, baggage loading platforms, quay ramps, and monorail cranes.
Common characteristics of our products are full compliance with current and applicable rules, structures and accessories designed for a problem-free operational life, and customisation to owners’ and operators’ requirements. Hydraulic automation systems ensure easier and safer operations.
