YARD MACHINERY French marinas welcome bespoke hoists Since the supply in 2016 of an Idra 700 ton capacity mobile boat hoist to West Istanbul Marina and a 100 ton capacity machine to Oren Marina, both in Turkey, Italian company PDN has significantly broadened its export reach. Important deliveries have been made to Tunisia of an Idra 140 tonne hoist and a 30 tonne capacity pedestal crane; a Movilift SC 110 crane supplied for a customer in Colombia; and an 80 tonne machine delivered to Marina Vinici in Croatia. A large RTG Movilift crane with 120 tonne capacity is also under construction for a Romanian client and other projects for the boat sector in this country are under negotiation. PDN’s policy of designing, building and supplying tailor-made mobile hoists to specific customer request is, however, seen at its best in two recent deliveries to France – to the extensive marina at Port Camargue on the Mediterranean and Dunkerque Marina in the north of the country. Port Camargue requested an Idra machine with a special three-leg design, (above and right) believed to be unique in the world market. “The hoist has just three legs so that it can operate in three marina basins which have different dock widths,” PDN managing director Italo Focherini tells Marina World. “It also combines the role of boat hoist with that of a boat trailer. It is highly manoeuvrable and swiftly transports boats around the yard.” As the majority of vessels at Port Camargue are sail boats or small motor boats, the lift capacity is around 20 tonnes. The hoist design for Dunkerque is, by contrast, amphibious, enabling it to operate on a slipway adjacent to the storage area which has a tidal range in excess of 5m (16ft). An arrangement of steps and walkways was developed at customer request to enable personnel to undertake maintenance even when the machine is under water and to give them easy up and down access between the machine and the boat. With a capacity of 30 tonnes, the Dunkerque hoist can handle sailboats up to 18m (59ft) in length without removing the stays of the marina mast. It has four steerable wheels and four mobile lifting points and is powered by an Iveco FPT five step diesel engine. Sauer Danfoss hydraulic pumps and distributors are fitted, along with PDN’s proven PLC electronic system. The machine will be delivered this quarter. PDN is currently working on a fully electric mobile hoist design so as to meet the needs of the growing green economy. – May/June 2021 45
