On Wednesday 24th April 2013, Alicat Workboats Ltd. formally unveiled and christened the yard’s new boat hoist during an open day attended by over 250 guests. The open day showcased the many new developments and divisions created by Alicat Workboats over the last few months.
The new boat hoist is a WISE 200TN and is amongst the largest and most capable in the UK. Specifically specified to suit the requirements of existing clients and the increase in the demand from the renewable energy sector, the new hoist can lift vessels up to 11m beam and up to 200 tonnes in weight with four wheel steering to maximise manoeuvrability when placing vessels within the new concrete yard area.
