How does TUGDOCK work?

TUGDOCK’s ‘inventive step’ is the installation of airbags into road-transportable frames.

Inflation and deflation of the airbags alters the buoyancy of the frames to submerge the deck and enable lifting and launching of vessels or floating structures.

Outrigger pontoons, or spud jacking units, provide stability during the lift or launch.
