Syncrolift, a Rolls-Royce company and the world leader in shiplift design and supply, and TTS handling systems, the leading designer and supplier of transfer systems, have agreed to market their products jointly worldwide. Shiplifts are the most technologically advanced drydocking systems on the market today, providing speed and operational features unavailable with graving and floating docks. Coupled with the mobility of a sophisticated transfer system, today’s modern shipyard becomes a multi-berth drydocking facility, ideal for fast, competitive and cost-effective shipbuilding or repair. In addition to shiplifts and transfer systems, shipyards will be able to order complete facility handling packages, including panel handling lines and robotic welding systems. Syncrolift and TTS will also combine their expertise in the design and supply of marine railways and side-launching systems, thereby expanding the range of systems offered to smaller ship and boat builders.
