Eversafe Marine Engineering company offer turnkey engineering service for customers’ vessels launching globally. We have proven track record of hundreds vessels launching with zero accident in the past ten years.
Ship launching with marine airbag is very flexible. By increasing airbag quantity or staggering airbags, people can launch vessels with different length or width at the same slipway. This technique overcomes the disadvantages of traditional end-launching or side-launching methods and can save customers’ most time and budget.
Eversafe Marine Engineering offer one stop service for customers’ ship launching projects, includes the design of launching procedure, providing all inclusive equipment , technical support and on site operation. After years of accumulation , we can launch vessels in below scope:

Airbag launching slipway
Generally slipway designed for airbag launching can be described as two parts: above water part and under water part. The vessel will be built on the above water part which has the small incline angle. And the under water part has bigger angle which can give launched vessel more slide forward force and make airbags can roll out of buttom of vessel. The distance,angle and structure of under water part are very important for the success of launching and also the safety of airbags.
If possible concrete slipway is the best. For temporary vessel launching, strong enough ground is acceptable.
The design of slipway need scientific calculation and computer simulation test. And good design slipway can suit most vessel’s’ launching.
Basic information needed for slipway design
1. Type of vessels?
2. LOA and length of vessels’ scope
3. Moulded breadth of vessels’ scope
4. Vessels’ actual launched weights (gravity weight)/weight without cargo?
5. Draft of stern and bow
6. Water survey data of launch area
7. Tidal table
8. GA of shipyard
