Syncrolift Platform

Our well-known Syncrolift Platform has increased the lifting capacity by means of a new cradle system that allows a better weight distribution. Since we put the new system into operation, we have dry-docked the “Reef Larissa”, “Siem Sapphire”, “Siem Ruby”, “Siem Emerald”, “Siem Pearl”, “Siem Diamond”, “Olympic Pegasus” and “Acergy Viking” with excellent results in terms of performance. These vessels would not have been dry-docked at Astican if we had not had the new cradle system, due to weights concentrations. Reef Larissa & Siem Emerald DD at the same time with the new cradle system.

The following video has an excellent example with DD of Siem Ruby Last May:
