NEI Syncrolift Receives Three Orders For Shiplifts And Transfer Systems

NEI Syncrolift, Miami, Fla., has received three more orders for shiplifts and transfer systems. The systems are to be installed in the United States, El Salvador and Hong Kong.

Scott Paper, Mount Vernon, Ala., is equipping its new yard with a 1,450-ton capacity Syncrolift which will be used to service the fleet of tugs and barges owned by the company and used for transporting its forest products. The new platform is being fabricated by Scott Paper, and will be 200 feet by 50 feet. Ten hoists will be installed by Syncrolift, each having a capacity of 183 tons.

The hoists, which were built in 1974 for the Greek Navy's Salamis installation, are being refurbished before being installed on the Scott Paper unit. The hoists became available when the Salamis installation was upgraded with larger units.

The Salvadorean Navy has ordered a 260-ton unit to be installed at PuntaRuca, El Salvador. The lift will be used to service fast patrol craft. Construction of the shiplift will be supervised by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and will include a 98.4-foot by 32.8-foot platform with four 91-ton hoists.

Ocean Shipbuilding of Hong Kong is relocating its facilities, and because the new location has a limited amount of space, Syncrolift will provide the company with a shiplift that has the ability to use a customdesigned transfer system. The shiplift will include a 147.6-foot by 49.2-foot platform and six 244-ton hoists.
