The Syncrolift In-haul & Positioning Systems are engineered to enhance the precision and safety of docking operations in shipyards.

These systems ensure that vessels are smoothly inhauled without contacting the side piers, thereby preventing potential hull damage in high winds.

Additionally, the system guarantees accurate ship positioning, aligning the keel precisely at the center of the shiplift or drydock.

Syncrolift offers customized in-haul and positioning systems for both submarines and surface ships, with the option for manual control or full automation.



Key Features

  • Precise Vessel Handling: These systems are engineered to guide vessels safely into the dock, precisely positioning them over the required support structures. This accuracy is critical for maintaining the vessel's stability and structural integrity during the docking process.
  • Operational Efficiency: By automating the in-haul and positioning tasks, these systems significantly reduce the manual effort and time traditionally associated with these operations. This efficiency not only speeds up the docking process but also allows for a higher turnover rate of vessel repairs and maintenance.
  • Enhanced Safety: The automated nature of the In-haul & Positioning Systems minimizes the need for manual intervention, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries associated with traditional docking methods. This feature is especially beneficial in maintaining high safety standards in busy or hazardous work environments.
  • Customizable and Adaptable: Syncrolift offers these systems in various configurations to suit different shipyard layouts and operational needs. Whether integrated with existing docking facilities or installed as part of a new construction project, the systems are tailored to meet specific customer requirements.
  • Durable and Reliable: Built to withstand the challenging conditions of marine environments, the In-haul & Positioning Systems are made from high-grade materials that resist wear and corrosion. Their robust construction ensures long-term reliability and reduces the need for frequent maintenance.


The Syncrolift In-haul & Positioning Systems are essential for shipyards that handle a range of vessel types and sizes, particularly where precision and safety are top priorities. These systems are suitable for both military and commercial shipyards, as well as repair docks that frequently manage complex docking scenarios.
