One of the world’s first electric marine hoists is installed in Spain

GH, a European benchmark company for crane design and manufacture, has launched its new GH70e electric marine boat hoist in the port of Bermeo in northern Spain marking a milestone in electric-based marine lifting solutions that will reduce environmental impact and achieve greater workplace safety.

Releasing the GH70e, a new line of electric automotive gantry cranes in the e-Motion line, is a major technological step forward for GH, which manufactures thousands of electric cranes every year and has over 70 years of experience in the field.
The GH70e, with 65 tonnes of capacity, offers the same power and performance as the hydraulic version and is used to lift and ground all kinds of vessels that need to be removed from the water and transferred to a drydock.
Key innovation rests in the development and implementation of new supply technology using a modular system of batteries that substitutes the diesel propulsion system used by conventional marine boat hoists.
Among its numerous features and benefits, of particular note is the incorporation of an autonomous solar panel support system, providing up to 20 per cent of the energy used on a daily basis.
The hoist also produces less noise and vibration and can be easily recharged via its inbuilt high-performance charging port during the working day thanks to a lithium-ion battery that comes with a ten year guarantee.
The machine is claimed to greatly improve dry-docking efficiency when grounding vessels of different widths thanks to its variable span feature. Electric steering is highly versatile in all steering modes and greater loading and workplace safety is ensured as the machine is equipped with numerous safety components including solid tyres. Less maintenance is required as the hoist has far fewer moving parts.
In its commitment to sustainability and care for the environment, GH will continue to take important steps forward in the development of this product line in coming years.
