Safety of divers at the port of Cadiz

Location: Cadiz, Spain

Solution: Xtirpa 1200mm hitch davit system, in the version that uses the vehicle as a counterweight

Type of intervention: Safety of diving companies’ operators engaged in ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of port infrastructure

 

Description of intervention

Genesi by Somain Italia has been active part in ensuring the safety of diving companies’ operators engaged in ordinary and extraordinary maintenance of port infrastructure, boats, docks and confined spaces in a submerged environment.

To meet the specific needs of this particular application, matching the advantages of the technical solution with the mobility and flexibility requirements that this solution must necessarily meet, we supplied the team of divers with the Xtirpa 1200mm hitch mount davit system, in the version that uses the vehicle as a counterweight, fixing the system to the towing ball of the vehicle itself. The system has been combined with different types of retractable fall arresters selected on the basis of the different inspection and maintenance activities to be carried out.

Genesi by Somain Italia also took charge of an on-site demonstration of the system, during which divers were able to experience the great reliability of the system, the speed of assembly and the ease of use. Users’ feedbacks were extremely positive: divers appreciate the Genesi Xtirpa solution especially for its  simple, fast, flexible, reliable features and  how responsive this solution is to the most stringent requirements imposed by Spanish and European safety standards.

The great strength point for this assembly is represented by the use of the vehicle as a counterweight, which provides unparalleled logistical flexibility to the Genesi solution.
