Welin Lambie is very proud to announce that our davit Type: UDTD 2.8 A davits have been selected for the CVN 78 (USS Gerald L. Ford) under construction at Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding in Newport News, Virginia.

The two all electric under deck mounted Type: UDTD 2.8 A davits are configured to handle the US Navy standard 7 M RHIB. In addition to the ABS requirements the davit will be supplied with certification under MIL-STD-167 for Vibration and MIL –STD -461 E for EMI (Electro Magnetic Interference). The davits will be fitted with Welin Lambie’s electronic constant tension system and will be fully equipped for “dead ship” manual operations.
