Tarragona, Spain (PortSEurope) June 26, 2020 – The synchrolift project being carried out by the Alava company URSSA, a steel construction company, at the Cantabrian wharf is progressing at a faster pace than expected. Ten of the 20 main beams that will be installed in this large elevator have already arrived at the Port of Tarragona. A synchrolift is a large metal structure for lifting boats
out of the water for maintenance or repair work with a lifting capacity of 15 Mt. This boat lift will have a total of 32 pieces and will consist of intermediate blocks measuring 25 x 70 x 3 meters and about 700-800 tons each, which will end up forming a structure of 2,428 tons. This collaboration project with URSSA reinforces the traffic of “Project Cargo” of the Port of Tarragona to position itself as one of the reference ports in the Mediterranean in terms of export of special cargo. The Port has infrastructures, mechanical handling equipment and stowage personnel qualified for this type of activity and facilitates large structures to be manufactured or assembled outdoors. The synchrolift, once assembled, will be shipped to Algeria. Copyright (C) PortSEurope. All Rights Reserved. 2020.
