JS-Series Jack-Up Systems gives operators a safe and efficient method to address heavy lifting challenges.

JS-Series Jack-Up Systems for synchronously lifting and mechanically holding loads gives operators a safe and efficient method to address lifting challenges.


The JS Series has a capacity per lifting tower of 125 – 750 metric tons, with a lifting height between 6 – 20 meters and up to 5% side load capacity, depending on model and lifting height.


The jack-up system is a specialized multi-point lifting system with self-contained hydraulics in each unit for uncluttered work areas. Loads are lifted in increments as steel boxes, called “barrels,” and stacked together to form lifting towers to mechanically hold the load. A typical system setup includes four jack-up units positioned under each corner of a load.

Typical applications include:

  • Bridge construction and demolition
  • Port crane lifting
  • Mining Shovel undecking
  • Top side lifting
  • Ship hull block installation
