JDN Hoists for Maritime Applications
With nearly 270 years of hoisting technology experience, the J. D. Neuhaus company have pioneered many substantial innovations in the field of air powered handling equipment and are now acknowledged as global market leaders utilising this technology.
The impressive range of the Profi Series, covering lift capacities from 250 kg up to a full 100 tonnes, is used worldwide within many heavy-industry applications including shipbuilding, covering new-build, refits and repair as well as dismantling.
Typical shipyard external applications include the installation and disassembly of rudder blades, shafts and propellers, while internal work includes heavy components for the engine room drive equipment as well as drive shafts and other general fitting out or installation work.
Other marine related products that can be supplied include hoists for underwater operations which have successfully been deployed for the removal, repair and eventual replacement of a damaged 50 tonne rudder on a fully loaded bulk cargo vessel while moored off the coast of Venezuela. A special shipyard brochure can be downloaded from the JDN website here.
