Carlifter Model 2

The construction of the new safe carlifter Model 2 was fundamentally changed from the first model.  Together with our customer, all possible adjustments regarding safety were implemented in the new model. The new adapted and heavier model meets the demand to be able to move the ever larger and heavier cars in a professional and safe way.

On 17/06/21 the first new carlifter Model 2 was delivered in Zeebrugge.

Rambiz at the yard at Hego in Antwerp

Scaldis' heavy lift vessel, Rambiz, is unique in the world with her two cranes, shallow draft, large deckspace and renewed large accommodation facilities. This arrangement, together with other qualities, give the vessel the capability to operate in areas no other comparable vessel can reach. Her ability to work in both deep and very shallow waters provides valuable flexibility.

Stefan Vanderlinden our new prevention advisor

02 December 2020

As you may know, every company should set up its own internal prevention and protection service at work. This service should assist the employer, the members of the hierarchical line and the employees in the application of the regulations concerning the well-being of the employees. This is first-line prevention, with a multidisciplinary approach to problems. We all know that it is not always easy to find a suitable person in our sector. After a long search, we found someone we felt very good with from the first meeting.

Soap and alcohol in combination with friction dissolve this protective wall, causing the virus particles to fall apart.
