Are you tired of the High Operating Costs and Downtime caused by your Wire Rope Shiplift?
…UPGRADE to a Chain Jack Shiplift!
With shiplift and transfer system experience since the mid-1960s and our dual lift chain design patented in 1976, Bardex offers a robust and secure way to lift ships. Unlike our competitors’ designs, none of our shiplifts have dropped a vessel. Your clients will feel much more comfortable knowing their ship will be held up by solid chains with built in redundancy for safety.
- Increase your Market Share by lifting heavier, denser ships:
- Increase your lifting capacity by 25%
- No major civil works modifications.
- No major modifications to existing platform.
Our dual lift hydraulically powered Chain Jacks offer many advantages:
• Simple design with fewer moving parts than wire rope systems.
• No excessive wear and tear due to fleet angle between wire rope drum and sheaves.
• No maintenance-prone items such as VFDs, gearboxes, brakes, bearings, sheaves, or wire ropes.
Enjoy the Benefits of Chain
• Superior corrosion resistance compared to wire ropes and sheaves submerged in sea water.
• Chains exhibit up to 15-year service life compared with maximum 5-year life for wire ropes.
Protect the Environment
• Eliminate environmental pollution caused by submerging greased wire ropes and sheaves.
Achieve Accuracy Where it Matters Most
• Load measurement, display and recording with accuracy of 0.5% of the lift capacity.
• Accurate position control and synchronization provide a perfectly level lift within 10mm across the entire platform without operator intervention.
Your shipyard can also benefit from the Bardex Virtual Dockmaster Service, a detailed simulation capable of helping your team understand the best arrangements for blocking, lifting and transferring specific ships. You provide us the ship load diagram and we will provide a detailed analysis of the best lifting and transfer arrangement.
Retrofitting an aging or undependable system with Chain Jacks is uncomplicated and inexpensive compared to continually paying for short lived repairs.
