self elevating submersible platform
Skylift 10000 is designed to launch gravity bases for the offshore wind industry or long vessels/superyachts from the quay into the water and vice versa. Skylift can also be used as a movable drydock or transport pontoon. It is a concentional Jack-Up that can submerge without the use of pumps and/or ballast systems. The valves in the top and bottom of the pontoon are opened and the submerging can begin. Very cost effective as it saved a lot of time and low in maintenance. Also much safer as you work above the waterline and is is aways 100% horizontal on it’s spudlegs.
The 4 jacking systems are manufactured with a heavy duty pinning system. Operation of this fast and heavy duty system, lifting and lowering / locking and un-locking, is done completely hydraulically from a control panel located in the control cabin.
