Outboard elevating / lifting systems

To allow for the outboard lifting of heavy equipment, goods and persons safely and effectively, TBV has introduced its scalable outboard elevator/lifting principle.

With this scalable principle, which is unique world-wide, it is now possible to hoist and lower equipment and persons outboard in a controlled, stabilized and safe way.

Unique features

The principle includes the following unique characteristics, that ensure its operational capabilities and safety:

  • Roll and pitch (heel and trim) compensation for (heavy) outboard vertical lifting;
  • Synchronized double-beam system for the horizontal movement;
  • Guiding frames for synchronized and guided vertical movement;
  • Complete system is operational in -/- 40°C environments;
  • Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) developed for arctic environments;
  • Redundant Hydraulic Power Unit (HPU);
  • Redundant composition of winches for vertical lifting.

Application purposes

This solution can be implemented for lifting and lowering items to and from the shore, a pack of ice or from the water line. Of the various application possibilities, the following is a selection:

  • Outboard handling of persons;
  • Outboard handling of heavy equipment (UUVs, submersibles);
  • Outboard handling of mission crafts or other sensitive equipment.
  • Outboard elevator partially-out position
  • Outboard elevator partially-out position, heel and trim compensated
  • Outboard sideways lifting system with synchronized horizontal beams
  • View from elevator room
  • Vertical guiding frame solution for guided outboard lifting
  • Vertical guiding frame solution for guided outboard lifting
  • UPS System for arctic, cold environment
