Green o’clock at Metstrade

Over the past two years, Boat Lift has had to rapidly adjust its perspectives so as to meet the demand for electric machines which it now sees as the leading customer choice.

In June this year, the company delivered a fully-electric 15 tonne hoist to Port de Plaisance La Rochelle, France. Claimed as a world-first, it paved the way for innovations, such as the 40 tonne electric hoist which will soon be delivered to Cantieri di Aprilia in Italy.
Market demand for electric machines is currently centred on small and medium machines with a capacity between 15 and 80 tonnes and customers are smaller marinas, but Boat Lift’s aim is to extend electric options to higher range hoists.
The company is using Metstrade 2022 as a platform to introduce a fully-electric 25 tonne self-propelled trailer.
The all-new electric trailer has a compact and solid structure and can be precision handled thanks to a DSC electronic steering system and proportional motion control. High-efficiency lithium batteries are sized to suit the machine so as to find the most effective tailor-made solution.
The advanced technology guarantees best performance and reliability during work cycles without requiring any specific maintenance, and the balancing system keeps cells efficient, enabling thousands of charging cycles. Furthermore, the fast-charge technology ensures the continuity of activities on site.
Aside from innovating with its electric range, Boat Lift continues to improve upon its well-established line of traditional machinery. Two boat hoists of 720 tons and 820 tons have been delivered, respectively, to Italian yard Eurocraft and Lyon Shipyard in Virginia, USA. Both are tailor-made solutions, ensuring reliability and efficiency in lifting and handling operations.
