New, 1,000-ton lift opens in Palma

After months of operational testing, STP Shipyard Palma officially presented its new 1,000-ton Travelift in early December.

“During the 12 years that STP has been operating, there has been a remarkable increase both in the number and the lengths of yachts that visit us but also in the quality and specialization of the companies dedicated to their repair,” STP CEO José María Campuzano said in a statement.

STP’s new lift is 26m long, 12.5m wide and 25m high, making it the largest Travelift in Europe by size and lifting capacity, according to STP.

STP can handle more than 140 large yachts at the same time. It sees more than 1,000 yachts of up to 120m a year, interacting with about 500 companies.

The new Travelift arrived at Palma last August, in 23 trucks, delivered from Italy. It took about two months to assemble. It has 32 wheels with electronic steering, two Volvo engines of 286Hp, 32 slings and four blocks of hoists per side, one fixed and three mobile. It is 26m long, 12.5m wide and 25m high, making it the largest capacity Travelift in Europe by size and lifting capacity, according to STP.

There are only four Travelifts of this type in the world: two in U.S., one in Dubai and the one in Palma, the yard said.
