Onshore systems – design and installation
The Sennen lifeboat is recovered on one slipway and launched
on another. Armada's hydraulic trolley transfers it between slips
and ensures it can be launched again quickly. Watch the launch.
Armada engineers are experienced in designing and building hydraulic systems that perfectly fit the requirements of the project in hand – at sea and on land.
Any engineering project must be checked thoroughly before it goes live. Hydraulic systems can appear to be working properly even while functioning at partial capacity – this can lead to dangerous or costly problems. Armada engineers are available for pre-launch trials on land-based installations anywhere in the world to ensure systems are operating to capacity and functioning correctly.
Our professional engineering services cover many areas, from bespoke swing bridge projects to turnkey craning solutions and hydraulic lifeboat recovery and launch systems such as the RNLI Sennen lifeboat that can be seen launching in above video. Our engineers detect leaks, locate power problems, identify incorrectly-fitted valves, check coolant function and, should a system need to be shut down quickly, you have the right person on site to take care of the situation without damage and without drama.
RNLI Sennen Lifeboat Station
Armada engineers are experienced in designing and building hydraulic systems that perfectly fit the requirements of the project in hand – at sea and on land. Our professional engineering teams have been involved with many turnkey projects including the hydraulic lifeboat recovery and launch system employed by the RNLI Sennen lifeboat.
The lifeboat is recovered via one slipway and transferred to its launch slip to be back on station. It is vital, as part of the RNLI's work of saving lives at sea, that this procedure is robust, failsafe and can be done quickly. You can see the lifeboat launching in above video.
