Heavy loads, precise positioning – The shipyard and maritime industry is one of the core industries for JDN equipment. Extremely heavy ship components such as hull sections, engines, propulsion systems, or the ship’s propeller are often lifted and carefully positioned in difficult to access and narrow environments.
The shipyard and maritime industry is characterized by the need to complete more work, with less manpower, while remaining on or ahead of schedule and under budget. In addition to the safety aspect, robustness and reliability of the lifting equipment plays a very important role in moving heavy and large loads with complex rigging arrangements often with millimeter precision.
The variety of shipyard or shipboard applications – with some of the heaviest loads, long lift heights, and the need to install and remove hoist equipment in difficult to access areas like the engine room, are key factors that shipbuilders’ value when selecting hoist, trolley, and overhead crane solutions.
J.D. Neuhaus has years of experience with thousands of hoist systems supplied for the shipyard and maritime industry. Their versatility of use, reliability, and long-term durability have been proven by many of the largest commercial and defense operators around the world.
The compact envelope of JDN equipment, in comparison to their total lifting capacity, makes it possible to use our hoists in the most challenging of confined spaces – with load capacities from 125kg to over 100 ton.
Our modular design with fewer wear components reduces the number of inspection points and time spent performing maintenance activities. Whether in port or at sea, routine maintenance and replacement of critical wear items can be completed quickly with little effort.
