Syncrolift, Inc. - The original American shiplift

Syncrolift is not your grandfather’s shiplift of 60 years ago. It is a much more user-friendly facility and can do many things which add to the safety of your drydocking operations.

Syncrolift, Inc., an innovative leader in shiplift technologies, is thrilled to announce its participation in the upcoming New Orleans Workboat Event set to take place from November 30th through December 2nd, 2022. At the event, Syncrolift will showcase its cutting-edge FastDocking technology that has revolutionized the industry.

The FastDocking system is one of the most advanced and safest dock-side solutions available today. It uses an automated system that safely guides vessels into a dock with unprecedented accuracy and speed, allowing for a smoother and faster docking process without compromising on safety. The system also reduces crew fatigue by eliminating manual steering and adjusting tasks while providing operators with real-time feedback on their vessel's trajectory.

A shiplift is the safest and most productive way to launch or recover a ship. In many countries “dynamic launches”, graving docks, and floating docks are a thing of the past. Over the years there have been many advances in shiplift engineering, many of which may not be very obvious to the casual observer.

One area where Syncrolift has made massive advances is in transfer system technology. The older transfer systems were very space intensive and unforgiving. Their newer fluid bed systems allow much more flexibility in managing the ships onshore in your yard. In addition, they can save you millions in civil engineering costs. All nuclear submarines at Electric Boat and all Arleigh Burke destroyers at Bath Iron Works are moving to launch on our Fluid Bed transfer systems.

FastDocking technology takes a lot of the “black art” out of preparing blocks for drydocking and loading the shiplift and/or transfer system. They help you dock ships much more quickly and with a much lower labor intensity. FastDocking also makes it really easy to withdraw tail shafts and propellors, which has never been a straightforward operation.

In short, today’s modern Syncrolift is not your grandfather’s shiplift of 60 years ago. It is a much more user-friendly facility and can do many things which add to the safety of your drydocking operations. It also helps your dockyard crew spend more time thinking, and less time using a lot of physical energy.

Syncrolift has units still in operation after 60 years and they are proud of the longevity of their shoplifts. Syncrolift remains ahead of the competition, as it adheres to the latest and greatest developments in maritime technology in the 21st century.

Come and see Syncrolift® Inc. on Stand #3361 at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans from November 30th through December 2nd.
