Newthex signs contract for new helicopter lifting platform

Just a few months after mounting the previous helicopter lifting platform Newthex signs a contract for delivering a new platform for another superyacht.

Due to the ships geometry and available space the Newthex engineering team was challenged to come up with a project specific solution which results in a shorter platform suitable for taking the helicopter.

The weather tight hatch is slightly bigger as 13 metres and when opened stands almost 4 metres high. The platform is driven by a hydraulic jigger cylinder which moves the platform by multiple wire ropes from the helideck down to the hangar.
