THE MEDIA VOICE OF THE GLOBAL MARINA INDUSTRY

One year operation of electric boat hoists

One year operation of electric boat hoistsSpanish company GH Cranes & Components reports the successful ‘one-year’ operation of its groundbreaking electric boat hoists in a Spanish marina. As the industry has traditionally relied on hydraulic systems powered by diesel engines, this milestone marks a significant shift towards sustainable and eco-friendly solutions.

Having over two fully-electric Rubber Tyre Gantry (RTG) cranes in operation for over a year has fostered growing interest in the new technology and GH currently has multiple projects underway, demonstrating the increasing popularity and acceptance of electric cranes in marina environments.
The introduction of electric boat hoists not only has positive environment impact but presents new challenges and opportunities and GH recognises the importance of adapting the technology to be of even more value to marina operators. R&D will thus be ongoing to build on the green benefits of entirely eliminating the emissions associated with diesel engines.
GH Cranes’ commitment to a greener future is reflected in its dedication to sustainable practices within the industry including the steps it has taken to address the issue of electric residual waste recycling. The company acknowledges the importance of managing and recycling waste generated by electric equipment, contributing to a circular economy model.
