PLA buys bigger hoist PRODUCTS & SERVICES The Port of London Authority (PLA) has recently taken delivery of a new Roodberg PHA100 boat hoist for use at its Denton Wharf facility. The machine, which was supplied via The Pontoon and Dock Company of the UK, is the second Roodberg machine at the site, complementing an RBT30 hydraulic boat mover. The PLA selected the hoist to replace a smaller capacity machine. As well as being able to lift larger vessels, the PHA is more fuel-efficient – with stop-start technology - eco-friendly and much more manoeuvrable. This means the PLA Marine Services team can lift the majority of the 40 or so PLA vessels out of the Thames and also deal with a wider variety of thirdparty Thames boats. “Replacing our boat lift with a new, higher capacity one underlines how important this operation has become, both to the PLA and the wider Thames community,” said PLA marine operations director, Peter Steen. “Over the past ten years we have invested more than £10 million in creating at Denton the well-equipped boat yard and load out facility it is today. Bringing in a higher capacity boat lift, with greater functionality, means we’re well set for the future.” PLA mechanical and electrical engineer Dave Fallows added: “This new equipment is able to deal with all our heavier vessels, with the only exception being ‘London Titan’. It’s much quieter than the existing machine, with heavy duty industrial tyres considerably reducing the risk of punctures.” The machine has been hard at work since installation and has lifted the Queen’s Row Barge ‘Gloriana’ amongst many other vessels.
