Maritime Installations

Being in contact with shipyards, ports and naval bases worldwide for decades, BRÖHL has developed a wide range of maritime installations for drydocking, and transferring ships and sections of manifold types.

BRÖHL performs supplies and services in all stages of the realization of maritime installation:

  • Consulting
  • Engineering
  • Manufacturing
  • Assembly
  • Commissioning
  • After-sales-service

In the field of dry-docking BRÖHL has gathered experience in around 80 national and international projects, covering:

Ship lifts

Electrically driven hoists lift and lower a platform as a docking basis for ships. Ship lifts can be designed as pier or pit buildings with end- or side transfer.


Rail bound carriages will be pulled by one or several winches over a slope in longitudinal or transverse directions.

Dual-level Transfer systems

Rail bound cradles transfer the ship off the platform to a pit-operated side transfer carriage, reaching parking- and repair berths on yard level.

Single-level Transfer systems

Transfer operations will be carried out in a single level yard, either by rail bound hydraulic bogies or rubber- wheeled multi-axle transporters.

Mover Units

Movements of transfer systems can also be carried out by separate mover units, as mobile winches, stationary winches or hydro mechanical linear gripper.

Drydock Equipment

Gate winches, hauling winches or capstans with suitable rope guiding systems serve for positioning of floated-in ships. Electrically resp. hydraulically operated bilge blocks are provided for stabilizing docking manoevres.
