This is a hoist developed by the consortium featuring ADC, FOC Transmissions and SEIREL, as well as two universities
An ADC innovation
The aim is to ensure a high level of safety (falling loads). The project is funded by an FUI (Fond Unique Interministeriel - Unique Interministerial Fund) to finance R&D projects.
Three technical aspects:
. Redundant rigging holding the load in case a cable fails
. Torque limiter built into the reducer: limits cable failure in case of load incidents
. Fast Brake - the aim is to work with the tongs closed (brake engaged by an auger following the rotation of the drum).
The tower is also equipped with a jib for lifting and setting up future hoists for testing.
