Interest builds for electric hoists

2023 has been another year of growth for Italian company Cimolai Technology, especially in terms of mobile boat hoist production. Most notably, two electric machines have been added to its reference portfolio.

A fully electric 30-ton mobile boat hoist is now in use at Marina Punta Gabbiani in north-east Italy.

A fully-electric 1500 Mobile Boat Hoist (MBH) for Hyak Shipyard in Astoria, Oregon, USA is currently under production and will be delivered in mid-2024. Offering 1,500 tons capacity, 29m (95ft) of height and 32 wheels, Cimolai Technology claims it will be the biggest boat hoist of its type in the world. It will be fully electric and powered by long life lithium batteries, and represents an important new achievement with regard to environmental sustainability.
To complete the electric product range, a fully electric 30-ton MBH has just been delivered to Marina Punta Gabbiani in Aprilia Marittima in the north-east of Italy. The marina customer already owns Cimolai Technology machines and adds this full electric version as proof of its commitment to making its site innovative from an environmentally friendly and sustainable point of view, and as evidence of its green investment.
At the top end of the Cimolai Technology range are huge machines, such as this 1,150 ton hoist delivered to Papilas Shipyard in Perama, Greece.

The machine is equipped with a lithium battery pack that provides total power of more than 100 kW/hr, which guarantees up to 20 handling operations. The status of the battery charging cycle is monitored and optimised thanks to an electronic “Batteries Management System” and it can be charged via electric network recharging in a very short time.
Requests for these boat hoists reflect market demand for both large electric boat hoists for shipyards and smaller boat hoists for marinas, and indicates that the market is also moving towards fully electric machines.
At the smaller end of the order book, a 450-ton MBH and a 115-ton boat hoist, together with a 45-ton boat trolley, are due to be delivered to Turkey. In addition, Cimolai Technology has just assembled and commissioned a 50-ton MBH for Porto Verde in Scarlino, Italy and two machines for the French group Monaco Marine: a 140-ton boat hoist for Beaulieu sur Mer and a 300 ton machine for Antibes.
Aside from machines delivered to marinas, the company has a series of large mobile hoists, from 500 to 1,200 tonnes, in production for refit and shipbuilding all over the world. Examples include two units, one of 820 tons and another of 1,200 tons telescopic in width, capable of reducing the track when fully loaded.
At the top end of this range of machines, Cimolai Technology has recently delivered and commissioned a huge boat hoist of 1,150 tons for Papilas Shipyard in Perama, Greece.
