Syncrolift in action

The facilities at our Trafalgar Wharf site include a hangar of approximately 5,000m which houses three overhead 15T gantry cranes. The ship cradles can move vessels of around 60 metres in length overall and up to 877 tons using the railed system. There is also a movable internal rail system which operates throughout the hangar that allows for traversing and dry docking of multiple vessels, providing protection from the elements.

  • Maximum weight to be lifted (including vessel and cradles) is 1000 tons.
  • Maximum weight of vessel is 877 tons (approx). Weight of cradles and associated equipment is 123 tons (approx).
  • Maximum LOA of vessel to be lifted 60m (subject to vessel configuration).
  • Maximum beam of vessel is 13m (approx).
  • Maximum draft of vessel is 4.2m (approx).

The external hard-standing is approx. 66m x 27m and provides a solid and level working area with full access around vessels for cleaning down in readiness for painting.

The site benefits from a large wet dock, measuring 130m x 29m with an opening of 13m beam and a draft of 4.2m. The wet dock includes fixed pontoons and a sea wall. All working areas in the water are complete with services. As well as site wide infrastructure improvements, the ship lift has recently been fully refurbished, tested and certified. Project offices, equipment storage and welfare facilities are available to hire for the duration of your project.
