The world’s most experienced supplier of shiplifts

The Syncrolift® shiplift system owned by Rolls-Royce was invented in 1954 and the first Syncrolift was built in Miami, Florida, in 1957. It is still operating today, using the same motors, gears and controls. During the 1960’s, Syncrolift shiplifts for vessels of 100 to 10,000 deadweight tonnes were installed in countries from the Arctic to the Equator.

In most cases, onshore transfer systems were installed in conjunction with the Syncrolift platform to permit the shipyard to accommodate several vessels at one time depending upon the available land.
