Tandanor Shipyard

Buenos Aires, Argentine

TANDANOR has a strategic location within the port area of the city of Buenos Aires.

On the South Channel, at the River Plate Estuary, only access to the Hidrovia formed by the rivers, Paraguay, Parana and de la Plata, along which we find ports, fit for oceanic vessels operations.

Northward, already on the Atlantic coast, we have the main Brazilian ports, and Southward, the most important commercial and tourist ports of Argentine Patagonia.


The Syncrolift is a huge elevator, a ship raising platform which is operated by a group of electro-mechanical lifts which place the platform to ground level.

The vessel to be dry-docked is put onto boggies throughout the length of the ship and towed on rails to the work site, through a transfer car with sideways motion that enables the vessel to be placed at the working cradles.

The number and size of these slipways hinges on the number of ship to be attended simultaneously.

The transition area rests on 54 piles of 900 mm. diameter each and the SYNCROLIFT is supported by 182 piles of 26 metres long and a diameter ranging from 900 to 1.250 mm. being placed with the utmost precision.


  • 15.000 tons of lifting capacity.
  • 11.700 tons of transfer capacity.
  • Vessels up to 55.000 tons. DWT (L.About 220 Mt.)
  • Size of lifting platform: 184 Mt. x 32,90 Mt.
  • Four working sites of 220, 178, 149 and 148 Mt.
