The SkyLift-16000 is designed for bringing heavy structures, such as concrete tunnels, windmill foundation ships, etc., from quay into the water and vice versa. 2 SkyLifts can be used for the removal of Oil Rigs.
The platform is built out of a mono hull pontoon, 4 Jacking Systems and 4 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.
