Skidding is used for moving and positioning heavy structures on a built-up skid track.
A skid shoe is mounted between the structure and the skid track. With the help of a greased skid track and a Teflon layer, a special designed mechanism pulls the load over the tracks. Next to the push and pull system, we also perform skidding with strand jacks, for example the load out of jackets. Sarens has performed skidding operations up to 18.000T.
