New “full electric” boat hoist for USA

Cimolai Technology has been awarded the contract to supply a ginormous boat hoist on tyres that will be installed in the industrial and maritime park Hyak Tongue Point in Astoria, Oregon (USA).
With its 1500 ton of capacity, 29m of height and 32 wheels, this is going to be the biggest boat hoist in the world, and it will be “full electric”: fed via “long life” lithium batteries, it represents a new important achievement also with respect to environment sustainability.
The boat hoist will be set to work in a strategic area for the Pacific northwest marine industry: Hyak Tongue Point is located close to the mouth of the Columbia River and its position is therefore easily accessible to commercial workboats and barges, Alaska-based fishing vessels and offshore tugs and commercial crafts.
