The Syncrolift®Rail Transfer System is designed to transport ships between a ship lift and dry berth on land. The transfer system is a robust, easy-to-operate system that requires little maintenance. It can be submerged and stored outdoors without damage or adverse effects. The Rail Transfer System runs on rails and can move both in lateral and transverse directions. The transfer system will move the vessel on a fluid bed with full control over the forces affecting the hull and the wheel loads. The system consists of a number of transfer trolleys, each with a lifting capacity of up to 350 metric tons.
- The transfer system operates on one level
