Blocks have to be placed on the dock floor before the ship can enter the dry dock. These blocks have to be placed accurately according to the docking plan, to ensure that the ship is not damaged. This takes time.
To simplify this process, Syncrolift AS has designed the FastDocking™ Auto Block Guiding system. This is a Lazer system, which plots out where to place the block from the docking plan, making the whole process faster and more accurate.
