Our SkyLift is a Jackup Platform with payload of 3000T but has the special abillity to submerge. It can therefore be used as a Jackup, Ship Dock, Ship Launch or launching tool for large steel and / or concrete structures.


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.
