specialists in shiplift, transfer and slipway projects


Marinlift is active worldwide in cooperating with clients to develop and realize the equipment installation for lifting and controlled launching/on-shore transferring  of vessels and off-shore structures.

As a system integrator Marinlift specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of such systems. Our team will provide management of turn-key projects including, as an option, the process of obtaining the required financing of the project. In execution phase we will work alongside the construction team of the civil contractor and the yards management.

We operate in both acquisition as well as execution phase with a fixed group of key-equipment/services supply partners.

Marinlift is committed to support and optimize the realization of each of these projects for the benefit of the customers, economically and in practice.
Therefore we have formed our strategic alliance.  

Company History and presence

Marinlift is a company wherein APS Europrotech and Dredging Marine Offshore Equipment and its alliance partners merged their knowledge and experience into a center of competence.

Our reliability is based on proven technology.


To be able to respond quickly and adapt to the needs of different locations in the world we have in-house engineering capacity. The participation of the established strategic alliance guarantees our constant quality and flexibility through experience. As some of our partners own production facilities in different countries or have strong working relations abroad, we can keep the costs low without loss in quality and efficiency.

In most cases Marinlift offers design and supply of the platform, winches, trestles and control system as a turn-key project. Ideally we will work in co-operation with a civil contractor to reach the most efficient design and execution of the project. Based on the clients business model, preview of vessels to be handled at the yard and the available area to be developed, we can make use of an proven pre-design/calculation tool to present a proposal complete with Capex expectations.

Maintenance and sedimentation issue’s will be addressed during design stage in co-operation with the civil-works designers.
