Drydocking At Todd Los Angeles Sets Record For Heaviest Lift On Yard's Syncrolift System

—Literature Available— The cruise ship M.V. Sun Princess of P&O in London was recently lifted and moved on Todd's Syncrolift for repair work on the propeller shaft and rudder as well as other general repair work.

With a length of 535.75 feet and a beam of 74.80 feet, the Sun Princess is the heaviest passenger vessel lifted so far with Todd's Syncrolift in Los Angeles. The Syncrolift is 655 feet long, has a 105-foot beam and is certified to hoist ships having a light ship displacement of up to 15,000 long tons. The lift consists of 55 beams, and each beam is able to support and lift a total of 480 tons.

After shifting the ship off the lift, two or more vessels (depending on overall length) can be stored in the two workbays where all the repair work will be performed.

The M.V. Sun Princess left the yard as the Star/Ship Majestic, now owned by Premier Cruise Line.
