To promote their latest product, Ravestein decided to bring their widely discussed Skylift to Seawork, to demonstrate to the world how it works.
“A lot of times we are on an exhibition with our scale model and photo’s, people still don’t believe the barge is actually submersible without the use of cranes, and/or ballast systems”, owner Cees Ravestein explained.
After 15 years with a stand, they decided to go bigger this year with their 60x28x4,5m submersible platform with a payload of 3000 tons.
Every day from 14.00h the platform will be lowered down to show how easy it submerges.
There will be also a possibility to come on board the Skylift for a drink and chat. Employees of Ravestein will be on board to answer all questions you may have. Inside the marquees, the stand will be still there if you want to have a more extensive chat, or want to view all other heavy maritime steel structures Ravestein can build, like Caissons, Lock Gates, RoRo Linkspans and Backhoe dredgers.
For the last 40 years, Ravestein has been the market leader when it comes to heavy maritime steel structures. This event, to see the Skylift in action, you can not miss out. Ravestein happily invites everyone to their stand PG 2 or onto the Skylift outside.
Seawork will take place from the 13th until the 15th of June at the Mayflower park, Southampton, UK. Tickets via www.seawork.com.
