Ship launches/float offs

In an industry consistently striving for improvements to safety, we are on hand to offer an alternative to traditional dynamic launching of ships. The benefits of a controlled launch, or float-off include:

  • Increased outfit opportunities
  • Increased safety
  • Reduced risk

Whilst this process may seem relatively straightforward at first glance, such operations require extensive pre-planning and engineering works. This is to ensure the equipment, usually drawn from a wide range of suppliers, is compatible with the vessel being launched, the trailer arrangements used for loading, the semisubmersible barge, the shipyard load out quay and the nominated berth or open water location for the float-off operation.


Our experienced project management and engineering teams have the capability to manage, engineer and deliver an end-to-end solution from the early design stage through to the completion of all on-site operations, acting as a single point of contact for turnkey projects and offering you the full range of services required to launch a vessel.
